Poem - The Poem's Voice

I love poetry because it can speak things that I cannot bring myself to voice.

The Poem's Voice
Poem for Day 044 – 20141106

My voice is mute,
my lungs are weak,
how can I speak
when my speech is destitute?

My poetry will be the means,
the medium of my message,
the sharing of my essence,
the conveyance of my dreams.

There will be fanciful landscapes
with visions both beautiful and horrific.
With this I hope to reshape
your impression of a world deific.

Gods and demons,
saviors and enslavers,
become most common
in my forever vision.

My voice is mute,
my poems are not.
They offer my tribute
to truths otherwise forgot.
