A cathartic release to bring myself peace,
As the ink flows from the tip of my pen.
Thoughts jumble; confused,
Feelings, emotions, sad or amused,
But I never know how it will end.
I don’t plan or plot the things that I jot,
They just drip from the nib of my pen.
As the structure takes shape
with my mental escape,
And my thoughts down on paper again.

forever reassure you.
With thoughtful verse
and encouraging rhymes,
to ease you through
your challenging times.
May the emotions that fl...

How have you inked
this palpitant heart?
Well, let me tell you:
Your barbs extend
long and deep and far,
far enough to pierce
skin of my resistance
with needlepoint of
But not only skin
deep; you refuse to
settle for what I
had to offer, deep--
you broke skin and
plunged deeper than
anyone ever did go
pierced right through
