Where The Poet~Is~


Where is the poetry?
if the poet left it
if his words have become tired
as much as he is

where is the love?
who lived in letters
between a poet and author
silent, mute

now threatens ~ tricked in the world~

once

weaving precious sounds
in your ear ~ the letters dancing ~
words that can be for anyone

loose, abandoned, there
rest your heart ~listening~

alone...

but the bard, the minstrel
had gone away

the words, the ballet
make sense just for him
and you pour tears
to enchanted more and more
your poetry

precious
tears

so where the poet ~is~?
crumpled sheet paper on the ground
careless steps and sadness
of one more unfinished poem

But not in your heart
is not?
