My Poetry, My Meaning

A heart unvoiced would wither

Without a pen to let flow

A thousand thoughts spanning time

Unrestrained emotion shown

 

A way to blend fantasy and reality

To keep a safe distance while still striking closer

The connections that bring us all to common ground

Discover we aren’t so different from each other

 

To break conventions that would bind me to the unspoken

Feel the colours and sounds in scenes on a page like a movie

Projected into the soul, manifested in the ephemeral

Unleashed, unburdened,

and resurface in joy

a heart taught to soar through the trauma

 

Never held down by silence
