The poet reaches for his pen
a broken heart to bare
To write the words he cannot speak
his deepest thoughts to share...
A well that springs from deep within
cannot be now contained
Emotions trapped for many years
run free and unrestrained...
A teardrop falls upon the page
the ink begins to smear
An avalanche of pouring rain
the words soon disappear...
