Exposing Myself

Exposing Myself

I tried to find the right poem,
seeking some poet who spoke to my heart….
I could find not one,
not one today to ruffle my feathers,
who transpired my thoughts,
as I drifted into sea salt rifts,
drizzling eyes that dazzled.

Many, many words,
long formed in the heavenlies,
essence of poets dead, and alive,
fantastical lyrics,
daliesque fountains that spew my thoughts,
none of them could capture me — today.
Not today.

Exploding visuals,
poetic waves,
rushing in masterful letters,
unzipping my soul before your eyes,
where is my perfect rhyme,
the one that reveals my exact?

Nowhere to be found,
mangled emotions,
twistings and spirals,
my inner prose searches for depth,
longing for a poet to undress me with their words,
I stand bare and shaking,
confessing my own letters.

    powerful and enticing, the seduction of the heart through metaphor…

    alas that words so often reflect longing for, and not truth…

    In the end unless we expose our hearts, we aren’t alive

    Thank you billgncs! Words, I love words!

    You are so right. I realized last summer that I had lost myself completely – turned into a drone without my knowledge. I use drone in the “a remote control mechanism” type context. I lost life in my soul because I had forced my expressions to stay hidden becoming nothing, but a shell.

    Exposing my heart has caused me fear, excitement, anxiety, happiness… it caused me to feel emotion and slowly I have been revived. 🙂

    Glad you peeked over!

    Ah, a fellow lover of words! Stringing them together to say what’s in your heart and mouth – now, that is poetry!

      Hi melodylowes!

      Yes, a lover of words! Thank you!

      I have enjoyed your poems too. I feel such a peace and smoothness (I consider smoothness a good thing :-)) when reading your words. They are beautiful – your images too!

    Not today. Sometimes today’s are meant for finding our inner poet 🙂 like you did!
