The Meaning of It

Updated on December 19, 2011

The Meaning of It: Poetry



Attacks the mind and soul

Bringing warmth and security

A movement

With words

Powerful as the kiss in romance

Gentle as aged wine

Amazing like shooting stars

This is poetry

It affects in the most upright ways

Yet it steals the mind

No control it has

Nor a meaning

Who is poetry?

It is the person

Not a subject

      i was trying to write something about what poetry is and what it can do... and i wrote a few different stanzas and it just wasn't working. and i read this and my jaw literally dropped. you nailed it. and i like that, "it is the person, not the subject." very inspirational. motivates me to keep writing. love your stuff!
