An Aspect of Poetry

An Aspect of Poetry

A Poem by Isabelle Faye

The ink splatters
across the page
like blood. 

The droplets
spraying the paper 
with a dark coloring. 

It stains
the pure white
destroying it. 

Writing poetry is
like cutting,
a release. 

My words
onto the paper,
from the pen. 

I write all
my secrets,
hide nothing. 
I can not
be discovered. 

My poetry
is a cloak of
veils hiding true meaning
like hiding scars.  

It plays
with words,
twists meanings. 

It slices 
into tender places
in my heart
like a knife. 

The pain,
the poems
feel good
and I need to write. 

The words spill
from my wrist 
to coat the page
in a slick cover
of ideas.
