The Poet In Me


Me with my poet pose :)

The Poet In Me

I’ve been known to be
inspirations flowing
through my veins
energy of the muse.

The word interpreter,

I breathe metaphors
and paint pictures
with lyrical destinations
on blank maps.

The voracious reader,

I’ve heard my voice
astounding thunderclaps
in rudimentary dreamscapes
and rebellious realism.

The doubtful visionary,

I’ve spoken
silent affirmations
in unknown languages
understanding the future.

The anti critic,

I’ve sold not my soul
for a good review
accepting the bad
as the challenge it is.

The poetic archivist,

I’ve known
what was read
to be reiterated
in past anthologies.

The unknown author,

I speak through my words
which speak for themselves
and resound in you
while residing in me.

The validated versifier,

I proclaim
the passionate poetess in me

speechless!

You poetry touched me. Thank you for the verses I enjoyed indeed. I was proud of your approach to life, I recognized myself in your verses and thus was healed once again. Let me explain the above. As I checked up my blog http://artbytomas.blogspot.com/ in the light of your poetry, I was a bit ashamed for some sad notes. So you awaken me once again.
Thank you.

This is a good unique way to describe yourself. I like this, and I've never seen it done this way before.

After AAAALLLLLLLL that beautiful song-verse....and then you end with "speechless" !!! Of all the words you could have ended with! I didn't even see that coming!!!!!

I loved it. :)

Another song, as is how I feel it is.... :)

Definitely, you describe yourself very well. Those, who have never met you, would know you from these words.
