Poetic escape


Your poetry takes me away
away from the madness
away from the pain
away from everything
that reminds me again
of how I hurt you
So right you were;
love and pain are eternally bound
they reside within the same sound
yet even then I find myself
floating away with your words
Amazing how simple a few lines
laced with emotions
like love and desire
words like care and kindness
how strung together
become the beauty of poetry;
simplicity
A chemistry of emotions
that leaves me breathless
and smiling
You always did make me smile
You are my poetic escape
