Email Poem | Today's Poetry

 Place of Refuge
The wear and tear upon bares down
Each one of us, each day it hounds
A soul seeking, some sweet repose
A place like this, your heart has chose

Your need is great to settle in
From rattled cage, from life it's been
Awhile since peace was felt and known to you
Today you'll write to help you through

If just today you come to know
Someone who reads where writers stow
Stoking fires that burn feelings
Upon this page, a soulful healing

The writer brings their burdens here
Some filled with love that will appear
As if you too have loved this way
As each word read on heart will lay

Others confess what your soul holds
A secret kept, one yet untold
For many come to lay their hands
On keyboard cold quite in demand

This place of refuge will bring closure
To someone hurt to life's exposure
Bringing the rain to quench what thirsts
A readers place, by poet birthed

Refuge defined a place of shelter
In short haven from helter skelter
A stomping ground where poet said
His food for thought, to all is fed

Seek refuge, today dear friends
As time will come and it will end
With hope your site becomes a refuge
For those who seek and finally read you
