Poet

It’s not in romanticising

His verses with big words
Or getting the rhyme
To near perfection
Or articulating the beauty
Of pretty things in sight
Or synthesising his thoughts
Into a strict word limit


But the need for his reader
To delve into the depths
Unknown even to himself;
Between words and phrases
That seem so unassuming;
The seemingly effortless ability
That draws every ounce
Of creativity and energy
Of his very pained soul
That is the mark of a true poet.
