I Am Like My Poems

 

 

I

have never

finished

a poem

I

simply gave

my pen

a

rest

My

poems are

like me

unfinished

free flowing

and a little

pieced

together

experimental?

They

crackle and pop

roar loud

like thunder

with a tiny

flash

of light

tiny

and insignificant

from

afar

but a force

to be reckoned

with

up close

Have

you ever

touched

a lightning bolt?

felt its jolts

animate your insides

while

bringing death

to flesh

because

underneath my words

is a sword

that cuts bone

and marrow

It’s

powerful

Be careful

not to

uncover

the deeper

thoughts

because

my poems

are

intensity

covered in

gentleness

My

poems

are

like me

I am

a

poem

God’s masterpiece
