Why I Write Poetry

Poetry is Freedom

Freedom from         structure

Freedom from                     form

Poetry allows for expression of my deepest fears

my darkest thoughts

my silliest whims

and my precious clichés

 

Poetry lets me stare at the clouds

and

imagine

their

conversation

 

Poetry lets me

observe the commonplace

and

describe it as

ethereal

 

Poetry

is

my

private

domain

 

Written freely

 

Read with bravado

 

Consumed by no one
