While the heart is still beating.
There are poems which should be read ‘Sotto Voce’
This perhaps is such a poem – I so enjoy word play!
I must try and craft a poem-
If only I could find a place to start.
Perhaps the ideal place would be
To look inside my heart.
I am but flesh and blood
With thoughts that appear, some bad, others good.
So I never know when I sit to write
Whether my words on a page will offend or delight.
But to express such thoughts I feel duty bound
Irrespective of how they sound.
Once I have laid them on a page
I release them, perhaps it’s you they were meant to engage?
