What is poetry but liberated emotions running wild
infusing every word with our deepest dreams
and fantasies alike, we become lovers and kings
travelers across the galaxy and with imperfect rhymes
we seduce beauty and make slaves out of time
living forever and ever with every word compiled.
What is poetry but a moment of clarity in the mind
captured flashes of sanity translated into phrases
forgotten memories that time and pain erases
and return in moments stripped of guilt and shame,
poetry is our passion setting hearts aflame
with our deepest desires in every word entwined.
What is poetry but a love affair hiding under covers
romance cascading down every line into the stream
of beauty found that softly entice to read and dream.
Poetry are kisses left in between for strangers lips
to taste in every word and gently touch with fingertips
the keys that make us friends, poets and lovers.
