A poet’s life

Friday 30 January 2009 15 responses

My heart flows from the end of my pen

Written from the juice of a blood red grape

The love, the joy all appear before me

A poet’s grace, my one true escape

The tears that flow from my pen so free

Save my eyes from a river of pain

A release of heartache and desperate longing

The words colour the paper with no refrain

The words of love that carry me high

Speak of life and its pure rich magic

Then they turn to help as they always do

To assist the poet through a time so tragic

Landscapes and beauty touch the writer’s soul

As this great land his words for a moment hold

Never to be owned just shared and enjoyed

To try to do more, who would be so bold?

The blood of my soul is the poet’s ink

Written in the words that are me

Exorcised from within to be seen and dealt

Then leaving the poet’s spirit forever free.
