Just poetry

01 Apr


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

    And that’s the mystery of it. Nobody ever truly knows what a poet is really meaning at any given time. I can be having the best week ever and post a really sad poem, or have the worst week ever, and post things about love, happiness and all things cheery. It’s just fun to post random poems at odd times. I always look forward to whatever you write. Have a wonderful weekend. ☀️🌈💛
