Poetry as Pain Release

Poetry as pain release;

shaving agony off the mind.

Leaving raw, red-bright


pulsating blood

into lines.

Havoc harnessed

and planted

under the Sun - the will to create -

We harvest, one by one,

each seed's


Our swelling subsides,

subdues into lullabies of healing.

Irises bleed meaning,

and for a snapshot in time

the tears create

inner truth.
