Ars Poetica

Somewhere on a page
There is a poem...

Language needs a page to hold
A poet frames the page
With his words.

Pain pressed into words
Becomes a poem
That's when language 
Comes undone
In its rawness
Organic,  abstract, artsy even

My dusky breath embraces
Thoughts of you...
Inside my dream..

The night makes a verse once more
And all I know is that
The pain makes me
Not the
A shrapnel scraping my soul
Like a machete wound 
In an oil painting

My warrior nerves flame
As poetry inscribes 
My electrified soul
That is mine to keep

A breath of gold 
Brings me home

In the red rush 
Of unfinished dreams
Stars' heal
The fevered nerves 
Of my hushed frame .

The Oriole sings
in my solstice. .

    1. I look up
      At the sky
      To where the stars lie
      I blow my tears to dry
      They comfort and heal
      For the wisp of my frame, a feel good feel

      Thank you dear blogger friend. Your comment is beautiful.

  1. Yasmin, I am lingering here for a while, to return later, to take in these words once more. Each stanza leaves me in awe, only to be drawn further in to a place that feels familiar, yet I know I have never been. Each stanza is also a stand alone story that becomes poetic perfection when woven together. πŸ’“
