.my Angel of Words
.
.
.
.
you will find no fight in these fingers
.

they are slaves to your gentle insistence
.

find a willingness in this empty pen
.

fill it with nuance and inspiration
.
.
.
.
oh, Angel of Words
.
.
.
cover me, in your earnest shroud
.

cloak me, with your vocabulary
.

help me hear the meter, divine the rhyme
.

take me on a journey above the constant clouds
.
.
.
.
………………………………………climb
.
.
.
.
…………………climb
.
.
.
.
climb with me into a clean
.

and ever clear sky
.

quiet this busy
.

mind, erase
.

horizons
.

as we
.

glide
.
.
.
.
……..glide
.
.
.

………………glide
.
.
.
.
……………………softly into the
.

………………………cradle of pure creativity,
.

……………………only you can open these two eyes
.

………………..when they believe there is nothing to see
.
.
.
.
…………………………………………………..fly
.
.
.
.
…………………………..fly
.
.
.
.
…….fly
.
.
.
.
with me over these uncharted landscapes
.

……..steel my spine, help heal these tragic memories
.

……………fill this fragile heart with bravery
.

…………………..to face my unknowns and life’s every mystery.

renewal redux

 photo tumblr_lqp396S3741qg39ewo1_500.gif
.
renewal was the first poem i wrote
after joining 20 Lines A Day on April 9th,
the second in my life.
i thought it was time now to add to it.
.

and

if

i
sound
wde eyed,
it’s because

i am.

i’m

a little
in awe of what
i’ve become,

so late

in my

day.
——-
and

a new
friend he
asked what

i did?

and

without
hesitation
‘i write poetry.’

expecting a
standard
respone

i’m

sure.

it’s

just that
listening to
this heart now…

‘…oh,

…nothing of
importance
to say

only
myself
to express.’
