Poetry Understands

entry picture

Poetry understands
walking dead,
monsters under the bed,
voices in your head.

Poetry understands
wounded souls,
storms, walls, 
severed rainbows.

Poetry understands
broken hearts,
rainy days, lonely nights,
moon light.

Poetry understands
star-crossed love,
hopeless romances,
second chances.

Poetry understands
twin flames
guilt, shame,
the blame game.

Poetry understands
weathered faces,
sad songs,
dark places.

Poetry understands
the mirror,
unanswered calls,
stumbles, falls.

Poetry understands 
it all.

So true for me. I feel like I am talking to a friend when I write or read poetry.

Thanks guys! I appreciate you reading and sharing your insightful thoughts. Jason, I have to remind myself too! Don, sometimes I spend as much time finding a song as I spend writing the poem, which is fun for me as I love music almost as much as poetry. I'm glad it flowed this time! Love that Ginsberg quote Keith. Yes, poetry is an outlet for all my emotions too. Poetry is my magic carpet ride through life! ?

When I had finished reading this poem the words of Allen Ginsberg came to mind, "Poetry is the one place where people can speak their original human mind". For me poetry is an outlet of all that sits within me, from anger and dissent to an appreciation of beauty and all emotions. We often go in search of inspiration when its source lies within us waiting to be given a voice or written with a pen put to paper.

Thank you for this
