I write poetry that no one will read
I sing songs to those who are not there
but the living breathing things inside my soul are my audience
they are waiting for the melody to push through the cracks
of gasps and moans
waiting for clenched fist that have never learned to fight
to ignite
and somehow
I won't be right below the brim, right under the surface, the light that never makes it through the blinds
I cannot be attempts
and then acceptance
of young dreams that never come to be
I have to be

    All poets desire a readership, and, if we're honest, the wider the audience the better. One of my quotes is: "Poetry that has never been read or heard is like a rose that has never been seen or smelled. It may indeed exist, but has yet to bring pleasure to anyone." Anyway, today your poem brought a bit of pleasure to me. Reach out and join the mix...
