I write to let out the demons in my mind

Souls to Dust, Love in Power

February 17, 2021


The love of the heart is the longing of souls
The greed in the mind is nothing but dust
One is desire for unconditional love
The other a temporary power. 

Poetry is the language of souls
The footsteps of those long turned to dust
The act of creating is one of love
Pages scribed with transcendent power. 

The body is but a prison for the soul
We all will return to our creation of dust
The inkstains of life contained in our love
Proof of a higher power.

Under my skin lives a primitive soul
Capable of so much more than my etchings in dust
Shining forth the light of love
Claimed by the submission of power.
Wow. It's been a while since I've written anything 'cause school's been super busy lately. I really don't know what this is, but I hope y'all like it!

    Re: Yeah, riding horses was something I always wanted to do since we used to live on the East coast where there were like no horses XD. But now we live in the Midwest and I take lessons and love them :)

    OH MY GOSH!!! This is gorgeous, I love this a lot. It's really pretty, beautifully written. Very rhymic. Is this free-verse or are you sticking to a form? It feels really structured which is cool.
