Just poetry

26 Mar



my poetry

is just poetry.


It is not

a song

from my soul.


It is not

a yearning

cry for help.


It is not

the burning

of desire.


It is not

a statement

of intent.


It is not


about you.


It is not

how I feel

right now.



my poetry

is just poetry.


A jumble

of words

I strung

Written a year ago. Still true. Except for the many times when it is not just poetry.
