I Am Poetry

I Am Poetry

A Poem by justjenn_2u

In an unopened cage,
I remain unrestrained.
In a world of black and white,
I am color in your night.


On a street without a name,
I'm the dancer in the rain.
On a ship without a voyage,
I'm the gypsy full of courage.


In a world so profound,
I may seem slave and bound.
In times of no chivalry,
I remain master and free.


In a room of masquerade,
I'm the inner child at play.
In the asylum of the heart,
I'm the voice of poetic art.

Wow, I loved this, the imagery is very nicely executed in form and flow, as the passion behind the wording takes on a life all its own, the way poetry represents art, the way metaphors open the door to deeper
understanding that would othrerwise be restrained. this is absolutely crafty and rhythmically creative.

Very well written to capture the imagination. Your flow of words are right on target. And yes, the last line captures it all. Keep writing, keep flowing.

Simple. Consistent. Descriptive. A beautiful work

A very moving and beautiful self-descriptive poem, which flow gently past the eyes, like the smoothest silk. Using metaphors, to open up to readers, parts of your soul, usually kept hidden from sight. Thank you, Jenn, for allowing us to get a glimpse of the "true", in this poem.

it's a nice piece overall nice flow with the rhyme scheme and for the most part a clear train of thought the third stanza is a little unclear and the rhyme slightly strained but that doesn't take away from the piece overall nice use of color and imagery though it does seem short and reads like apiece waiting to be fleshed out i've got quite a few my self in that stage a good piece

Well, from what I just read you would be a lovely woman to meet!

Usually, I'm not a fan of the constant rhyme (despite violating this myself over and over again) but I liked the image of yourself you portrayed.

Lovely! : )

I write from my heart. I follow my instinct. I live impulsively. I never feel like my feet are firmly grounded as I am a free spirit. I am a very intuitive person, sometimes to the point it hurts .. more..
