An Artist's Soul Poem
All this time that I have been searching
I have always known that I have a deep, dark soul;
An Artist through and through,
One without any clue.
When I think about Sylvia Plath, she seems the same as me.
She had the same kinds of feelings; never tame, always free.
But I didn't have a life like her;
Mine had always been simple and secure
Unlike my soul that can't be stilled,
That is just a part of my being that can't be filled.
It has kept this hold on me and keeps me from
Any normalcy. What you perceive
Of me you don't truly know.
You do not have this artist's flow.
I know that I am so for a reason
I am waiting for the right time
When by whole soul will be bared
And my everything will be shared.
Maybe perhaps, you will know me
And when I die everyone will agree
That I had an artist's soul throughout
Though no one knew what I was all about.
