how far can my poetry go
that I will never know
I pray it goes way beyond
beyond the gaps of my bleeding lines
farther than my thoughts could travel
louder than my rhythm could utter
faster than my verses could tickle
but one thing for sure though
know my dear
every word
every syllable
every rhythm
every rhyme
and every verses
is filled with magical wishes
of desiring to be where you are
right at the moment
the very moment
my poetry bleeds for you
in as much as my soul longs for yours
just like the deep dark clouds
that one huge rain
turns into a one giant downpour

For kate’s friday fun

  1. Oh, SweetMich! Your poems touch the highest star, the deepest-saddest soul…and everything/everyone in between! It is so exciting that your poems will live on for generations….so many people will be richer, wiser, and happier because your words rained on them with love. 🙂
