There are stories my heart will share With all the sadness laid bare. I breathe the words I hold inside With emotions that gently chide. I leave a piece of me here for you On this paper, words I drew. My soul spills ink that covers miles To your eyes to be read with smiles. Heartstrings pull and tug hidden words Stories unfold from memories stirred. Poetry is my only preparation I live it up with no deception. I write my story with all dedication Saying it all is my salvation. These are stories that hold my heart Little treasures that hold light in the dark.
