A Poet's World- II/ Written 2/22/2009
Only poets have the capacity and appreciation to comprehend the true meaning of this poem.
Be it a dream, imagination or fantasy unfurled
Oh my god in heaven is this a poets world?
Cometh unto me captured and consumed my soul
Tattered strips of life's tapestry sewn to console
Emotional patchwork satisfied that made me whole
Paths trod upon by thousands... we're never alone
And I, the dreamer, ventured away to forge my own
Taking adoration too far away from what was real
My spirit flew to a place where I again could feel
My innocence sold- How did I know heart's could steal?
Engrained forever in mind words crafted tell our tale
Only few realize a poet's world where emotions sail
Into horizons we cannot touch for mind's playful zeal
Embezzling shadows to walk with us… yes it's real
Potential of intense fear… my fallen spirit does reveal
This world survives in realism as we'd desire it to be
Dangerous yet marvelous and amazingly beautiful to me
Memories etched cannot be erased by hearts of gold
And silence is never golden for volumes will be told
A poet's world cannot be denied its pleasures to unfold
We'll create intelligent distractions to help us make
Illusions that hide subconscious thoughts for our sake
So play them, massage them, believe them, for words convey
Depth and layers in metaphoric delights in desire to say
To this occasion I say... RISE!
As we dreamers always find a way
