“Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It's that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that's what the poet does.” ~ Allen Ginsberg

"Every heart sings a song, incomplete, until another heart whispers back. Those who wish to sing always find a song. At the touch of a lover, everyone becomes a poet."
~ Plato

'I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night."
~ Sarah Williams

"Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen."
~ Leonardo da Vinci

Deep Inside Out

June 29, 2020



It's not about your careless tumbled hair
Those softly kindled chestnut eyes
Or the laugh ringing out into the sky

The outside of a person doesn't tell you much
Books with their covers are out of date
And nothing you could paint onto yourself
Could define your life that I've come to love

Yet maybe there's truth in them

Your brilliant locks say "look at me"
But they remind me of the conflict there

Eyes truly take photographs of someone's soul
Still-lifes of a film I ache to learn

Your laughter is just on the other side of normal
And it shows who you are when you're finally free
