Reaching farther with quivering fingers Will a hand branch out, Intertwining with mine?
Since today marks the beginning of a new year, I thought this would be a good poem to mark the occasion. Happy New Year, everyone!
Page after page fills, a manifestation of the intrusive words Keeping me awake at night, nudging me to finally speak up Ever so gently, their blazing heat embraces my soul, urging me on My fingers caress the sea of flames, breathing an inferno to life
In the solitude of night Where my sanctuary resides, Silence is the only companion
I try to force the thoughts together, Hoping they'll form a cohesive metaphor It's all for naught, My mind suffering a drought Whatever stories I have inside, Simply refuse to come to life
