Poetry, to me, is the defiance —
Unapologetic sensationalizing of a world that is often unforgiving.
The unbridled strength and courage
To pepper meaning onto that which is deemed insignificant
With a divine poignancy.
The unmitigated desire to repurpose evanescent chaos
Parsing itself over vacant and misplaced minds.
The waking and coloring of docile and achromatic senses
The feel and touch of a lover who’s in reach but will never exist
… Lest tainted by the limitations veiling our fragile reality.
Poetry, dear reader,
Is the gentle push that a healing heart never knew it needed.
