Poetry is openness and honesty,
well, that’s how it feels to me.
Like eyes, they’re a window to the soul
while writing poetry for me… it feels a hole.
It makes me whole.
Poetry is like a photograph,
I am a photographer…
that one moment and how you feel within it.

a form of poetry
expressing my feelings in a blasts
The reader now knows,
Myself laid bare and vulnerable.
Stripped bare for just an instance.
the reader staring and judging,
inturperting my words as theirs.

and they are all you.
The many different parts of you.

It is on show.
As a poet you are exposed.
