This free verse poetry “I Am Not a Poet.”
Tantalizes the escape of words, sometimes filtered through emotion like an hour glass. I hope you enjoy this tidbit of a free verse and the digital art piece.
I am not a poet.
I am a girl.
In a woman’s body.
But not a lot.
I feel too!
Silly emotions erode places
So, I keep my thoughts to myself, until,
I’m ready to spin words into magic.
I have found that politeness
runs on bending roads.
It’s the edges I get lost in sometimes.
They wrangle inside.
And yearn for white canvas.
Learn to speak, to spill.
Sometimes they’re quiet.
Profound as they may be, they’re nothing, unless viewed through looking glasses.
These twisted, squabblings do things-To people,
Reaching, calling to their hearts.
Like sand sifting through a fibrous paper.
Falling. Falling. To the bottom of somewhere.
In a trance, bound by each line.
Then, there it is. That smile, teeth baring expression.
Enlightenment. Like I said. I am not a poet.
Just a girl, spreading insight from the inside to the outside.
