Words to caress #poetry


Poetry has to fill me

with the song of a forgotten love,

a warm scent of ocean, his long goodbye.


Poetry has to touch me,

opening a gateway into moments

when a strong yet gentle hand touched my face.


Poetry has to reach inside,

pulling me toward a churning thought

begging to break free of this human shell.


Fill me with remembrance of life,

words to caress a grateful mind
