Poetry Makes Me Feel...

Updated on March 26, 2012

Poetry Makes Me Feel...

What do I like about poetry?
Maybe the way it rolls off my tongue when spoken or maybe
the endless nights of romance, adventure then back to horror.
Longing to write the correct words to express a single soul

Feeling each letter about to be written
concentrating on the style instead of punctuation
reaching out to hearts not yet felt, tears not yet touched.

Grabbing hold to those memories, feeling of a love, or re-kindled friendship sure to last
no need for shouting these words they are more powerful than you'll every have.
Maybe in ten or twenty years all that it is will grow.
So what do I like about p-o-e-t-r-y maybe the way it rolls off my tongue,
like children full of laughter after many rains

..or the many ways you can express the soul, open the heart, or replenish the mind with the expression called words

      This is a great poem. My favorite line: "the way it rolls off my tongue, like children full of laughter after many rains"
