A Poet's Story

A Poet's Story

A Poem by Jen

Escaping  twisted taunted illusions of love
I reached for dangling words pulsating life
Comforting and rehabilitating each line to my mind
Seeking ease from the lies that chased me here
Crumbled up like the love letters on my floor

A writer's treasure trove world created by words
Releasing all the spinning waves of shapes that
bounce off the walls from the voices in their heads
Brought back from the Universe put to meaning

One reach for a favorite scribe and hope smiles, 
in the tangled sadness of his words
The hope excels to dreams of loving arms
and soft nights sharing our dark secrets

The story begins as the sun rises and light reveals truth
Togther, love protects our dark treasures we keep  
hidden under masks of falsehoods 
Hand in hand we stand guard over the other 
keeping the depths of our darkest secret safe

If only this tale's ending was like that of a fairytale
Where endings never come and love is a blossom
Growing entwined under starry nights 
Handed off to bright sunny days
There is no truth in happily ever afters

Well said...well put...well done, my dear, dear poet.
I would say more, but what is there to add? For as Shakespeare revealed..."The rest is silence".
