Why Write Poetry? (Poem 41 of 99)

The scorpion of silence stings

As the melody of loneliness sings

The diamond of temptation blings

As ego clips faith’s wings


My feelings are a bomb that will detonate

And their shrapnel in your soul will resonate


People ask me what writing poetry is all about

I say: “put a space between the a and b and you will see”:

It certainly is a bout


I poke a nest of emotion in my heart

And out swarm an army of bees

Stinging me with metaphors and alliteration


Everybody has the right to live

So I write to live
