If by poetry



by poetry

I can make her

flesh and blood

my body on which to press

I will forge

such compelling words

her hungry soul

to steal

I originally tweeted these words over three years past, but liked them so much I elevated them to a blog post two years ago. If elevate is the right word. I hope you don’t mind them again. It is one of my favourite short poems.

    If by words I could express how compelling your poetry is I would surely find them. Until then I hope I am not too cliche in my praise for your captivating verses.

    Wow. This reminded me of a poem I wrote a while back, think I’ll be brave and post it. Great work!
