I Am Me

img_0665

I am

the   STORY

only some wish to read

I am

the PASSION

only some choose to feel

I am

the WOMAN

only some choose to love

I am

the POETRY

of what was hidden

for so long

ME

renewed

revived

reborn

and I care not

who reads, feels, or loves

because

I DO

Ph-me

(#OctPoWriMo loosely based on Day 14 theme If I Were Me. I am catching up!  I do write poems every single day, but I don’t always feel they are worthy enough for WordPress.  Thus, why I am playing catchup here.  And yes, that is me in the picture 😊)

Letter to My Poet

This poem was written for a writing prompt on Twitter and based on the title of my dear friend Entirety J. Roberts‘ first published book of poetry “Dear Poet- A Book of Uncommon Prayers.” It is a must read book of her heart and soul which helped lead me to this poem.

Dear Poet,

You captured me

extracted words

from marrow of my bones

sucked ink

from barely pumping veins

poured it all

onto a page

and blessed me

with the honor

of becoming one

with you
