An act of poetry


Ruin is what we need -
Despair is what we feed
Upon in poetry

A shock resets the nerves -
Helps remould the curves
Of written art

Catharsis helps portray -
Acting out a play
On expurgation

Tears or hidden fears
Release the bottled years
To ink a page:

The pen be our salvation.
