The Poet

The Poet

A Poem by Aianarie (INACTIVE)
"

An actual response that I wrote to a young friend. He is a poet now as well. :-)

"

Someone once asked me

What do poets write but words?

My mind couldn’t produce an answer

So I let my heart pour forth my response

 

And I told him:

 

What one may see as empty words

Mean so much more to he that wrote it

My ashes of yesterday are fading tears

His are broken, shattered hopes.

 

A once lonely and half-hearted smile

Becomes an expression of truest love

Or, the darkest of untold secrets

All with a single stroke of the pen.

 

The sun, His son, how He doth shine

I hear, right here, His song divine

Tomorrow my sorrow will disappear

When I am reminded He is always near.

 

Beautiful, wonderful, is this not?

The way I paint your dreams

Close your eyes and imagine a place

Where all is much more than it seems.

 

This is where a poet’s soul can thrive

And you are most welcome here, too

Where hearts feel awake and alive

A forgotten realm, waiting for you.

This is such a wonderfully crafted piece of writing and an awesome answer to all the people who see writings only as entertainment. :-)

Wow, this actually brought a tear to my eye. You express how a true poet feels about their work. When I read this I could literally agree with every line. I have been asked that question from people before and I thought I had a pretty good answer but nothing that compares to this. Your words are just beautiful...
