Poem - Words Inside a Box

The poem “Words Inside a Box” is about the artistic sharing of the artist. While it does focus on words, any form of art always has some element of the artist on display. At the same time the most powerful art speaks of the person viewing it. It says something abouyt them when the connection is made.


Words Inside a Box
Poem for Day 354 – 20151221

Words inside a box
formed by my thoughts
enclosed by letters
framed by periods.
Meager dialogue
is it suffient
to share who I am
who I see you to be?

Please gentle reader
show a kindness here.
There is more at play
than a voice dismayed.
There is a purpose
to certain madness
mixed with compassion
for the fellow man.

Thoughts are betrayed
better left unsaid
yet there they are
in glorious print.
Beware what you learn
about this author
because the mirror
turns back to you.

You inspire my thoughts
without meaning to
we are together
in these four walls made.
The letters may state
things best left unsaid
yet I'll display
words inside a box.
