Is it something deep and profound,
that speaks of the human condition?
Or the verbose rambling
of a writer with a well-thumbed thesaurus.
and agile alliteration…
Or an invitation to peer inside
the bruised and bleeding heart of the poet?
Perhaps an exquisite painting with words,
that explores every nuance of a breath-taking scene…
Does every line,
have to rhyme?
Short, sharp and punchy?
Or takes a half hour to digest…
Or is a poem
a crafted collection of words,
that when carefully stitched together,
That makes us feel.
That connects two people,
in this moment…
