You are my personal balance stability.
Through you I experience a release,
A feeling of relief that never ceases.
At times I struggle to find the words,
To write from my heart’s yearnings.
Then out of seemingly nowhere
An invisible faucet in my mind
Gently turns its handle to dispense
All the frustration and confusion
That puddled deep inside me from
Idle brain liquid letters into words.
Instead of rinsing these creative ideas
Down the drain of never-pursue land,
I catch them with pen, paper & typing.
These word droplets produce sentences,
Soon a steady stream flows onto paper
Bringing into fruition, my friend, poetry.
I learn to improve and try to perfect
The water quality in my basin of poetry
As I nurture my faucet of creativity.
You, my friend, are unique.
You keep me sane and edifying.
You are my soul stirring passion.
You are creative writing.
You are poetry, my friend forever.
