Giving this poem a pulse.

While the heart is still beating.


There are poems which should be read ‘Sotto Voce’

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.

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?
