Good evening everyone and welcome to another Friday Night Poetry Corner. This week is a sensational poem by Mikalea called “The Words.” I am sure when you finish reading this brilliance you will see how the title fits the poem. Please visit this writer’s blog when you can!
The words sprout from my heart
like a delicate white orchid.
Their roots wrap around my soul,
and when it swells with sadness
and my heart bursts from suffering,
the orchid feeds on my salty tears.
The growing words spill from
my heart and there’s no escape.
So I place pen to paper, and I write.
I was talking to elisgraci and she said a few words that inspired this poem.
Check out her work, she’s an amazing writer and photographer!
