Thank you, poetry

Poetry breathes

Poetry

You are my refuge

The one place I can go to

To have my soul fed

The luminous place where I can dive so deep down

Or be born aloft on the wings of words

That others write

Which speak exactly of how it is to live

In world so overpowering

In its beauty, agony, ecstasy and terror

 

Poetry you are also my rock

One I know will never desert me

Even in the darkest of nights

Even when every other soul has left

And it is such comfort to my heart

That I can rest secure in the knowing

That whether I turn to you my weeping or smiling self

You will answer in a way

That always fulfils the empty spaces

And helps me more deeply

Know myself
