I’m a poet and didn’t show it

I have maintained for a long time, that I write primarily for myself. Nowhere is this more true than when it comes to my poetry. I never read my poems out loud and don’t generally draw attention to the fact that I even write. Some of this stems from a pretty deep-rooted fear that my…

Belly cramping Ball in my chest Eyes glazing over Mind in a daze Hands clenched Throat closing down Sick from and of it Tired in so many ways

Music is love

Digital window

In the early morning hours, The faint glow returns, Shining on my face Where I lie.  Looking out onto the world, My eyes take it all in, Seeing where I am From my room. If I need to escape the confines, I can just lean across, Throwing it open For fresh air.

Faking it
