Between the Lines


The poetry rhymes  
or doesn't  

The flowery 
angry 
or heartbreaking words 
are  
released 
upon the page 

Stories 
tug at heartstrings  

Flooding emotions 
scream and cry  

The darkness within 
or without
finds its way 
through my fingertips  

What appears 
upon the page 
not always in my 
control  

My muse takes 
me on

Rides 
I never dreamed of  

Places and people 
never seen

Stirrings 
emotions 
never before
felt  

My exploration 
of the human experience 
captured 
laid bare 
upon the page

Somewhere 
between the lines
I find myself
