Now Poetry Is Here

Pain, a numbness,

a blow in the heart,

a broken rib through my lung.

My heart cries –



Enough of using words as spears,

enough of breaking hearts.

Enough of war,

enough of fear.

Just let me be here…

Just let me fly here…

With my heart open.

Stop the stupidity against the soul,

my emotions were never wrong.

But no one could handle them.

No one could.

Peace, my heart,

poetry is here.

Peace, solace,

openness, safety,

and Spirit.

Poetry listens

Poetry can handle it

Poetry is wide as Eternity.

Everything goes,

everything heals,

everything soars …

Don’t suppress, my heart,

don’t crush it.

Let Her and breathe through the pain.

It’s bringing you life.

Oh, my heart, I’m here

now, listening to your



is the rhythm of my life.

It was not grief.

It was not anger.

And certainly,

although it seemed like,

it was not pain.

It was poetry

being held captive


from the process of my soul.

Now I just write.

Because poetry is enough.

Brave poetry.
