Poetry of the ones who are lonely
are not the same as poetry the ones who are lonely
I have always known,
once I let you into this room called my heart,
it will never feel the same when you leave.
And yet I do, I do again and over,
you are my every lover, my any lover,
I have never stopped loving you.
You are the life of my words.
My readers do not know you, but they too,
have known how any love could hurt.
Poetry hurts because poetry is love
and because poetry is you.
Without you I would never have found inside myself a poet.
The world could do with one less lover. One less poet.
But I could not have become me without you and my poetry.
And the meaning of my life is just as simple as that.
