A Poem Is…

A crying out of the spirit
When you suppress the scream.

A poem is;
The written words of love
When your presence
Take my breath away.

A poem is;
Inadequate words
To describe the splendor of God.

A poem is;
Words written
That no one wanted to listen to.

A poem is;
The thoughts that come,
In your quiet time.

A poem is;
Expressed emotions
That change daily.

A poem is;
Artistic creations
By the unique individual.

A poem is;
The secret
That is never talked about.

A poem is;
Fiction
Truth
Facts
Opinion…

A poem is…
