I want to preface this poem with a little explanation. It has been a long time since I have been able to write poetry. It has felt like an essential part of me has been asleep or cut off. I don’t claim my poetry is any good but writing it is something I need to do like breathing.

Words and phrases had been going through my mind for a few days last night I wrote for the first time in over a year.

 

This poem is on example

my words

long denied

The expressions of my feelings

my moods

my hopes my dreams

my faults  my tragedies

real or imagined

buried deep inside me

the pain and loss of my inner self to much to bear

slowly eroding at my heart

with no escape in sight

until.... tonight

I picked up a pen and wrote down these words

A part of me long denied

thought dead

but only asleep instead

come awake at last

A sense of rightness and completion
long forgotten

enfolding me

a piece of my soul returned

I know next to nothing about poetry (except I recognize blank verse and haiku's when I see them :> but I thought this was excellent in that it definitely evoked visual imagery and emotion. Good job and I'm glad you found your voice again/
