bore from the most arduous labor, its intoxicating fruit, its sweet blossoming fragrance, pulls in the strongest of hearts. as a vine snakes its way through the depths of a luscious secret garden, distinct impressions produce the richest aromas. even to an untrained eye, the sweetest honey couldn’t go unnoticed.

Late at night Lying in bed Headphones on Listening to music Or a few recorded poems Reading the latest I attempt to craft a new one Or brush up a draft not quite finished
It’s becoming routine I’ve always been An undercover poet Now I’m sharing my words With my family’s support as an added bonus
Shared are the happenings, The disappointments, The contests never won, Submissions rejected And poetry readings I’ve done But only a select few are read Only those that are safe Too many things need to be left unsaid
Safe are the clouds Blowing with the whispering wind Safe are the waves Leaping over me as I rescind All my powers to Mother Nature She’s the one we must bow to Who we give our ultimate thanks to
Those poems of desire and longing Full of sorrow Never to be filled By our wants in all of our tomorrows No, those things aren’t safe There’s too many things that need to be left unsaid
All the words to say The sad ones The lonely ones The grateful ones The mad ones They circulate through you But never leave your lips Raging out onto paper For all to read But the ones closest to you Will never see Those words escape effortlessly
Words poured out late at night And splayed across the light of day Words that others will relate And make others feel safe That they too feel the same way Words that will make you give ‘Thanks, Thanks for today’
So use your words Use them wisely Share them with those you love Share them with your friends and family Share them with the world Let them see Just what you feel Spark them with your electricity
