Thank's-its a great thing I think -as it will push us to get descriptive in a new way-assess deeply why what we love is so special ((very revealing to self))-and reading others, trying to figure it out-also opens up new doors-so I am really excited too-thank's..!! :-)

"It"
by:  Eric L. Boddie

It shows you my heart
It puts my Soul on the paper in the form of art
It is mightier than any sword
It has a cost that any can afford
But what it does makes it so priceless to me
So many appreciate it for the works that come to be
It conveys my thoughts so that each of you can witness
It shows how my will is so relentless
It helps me to show the world that God Is The Truth
It is the reason I am here....these words provide more proof

Where I Breathe    

Domineering material
draped
from a barely visible pelmet ,
flowiing and caving
under immense torrents of pressure ,
overtaking the shoe box room
appearing to be ogres in their
brilliance ,
like expanding chests
breathing heavily
creating superiority ,
they frame my favourite thing ,
an optical , in-animate
it opens , I can walk through it
emitting all light
I sit in reflection
through to the night .

If only it could tell me
of all the gone , the lonely  
memories , that shone
right through to where I be ,
of a world , a home
that beats as I breathe .

I gave it away
Just today..
But I watched it fade..
As you pushed it away..

I found you lied
About what's inside..
You broke mine..
And I died..

It still remains broken
From all those words unspoken..

Lucid and vivid
The memories it begot,

The day I obtained it
I never forgot.

Puts smiles on my face,
Smiles you can't trace. †

Soft is its surface
On it I adore the moon,

Rough are its edges
It whistles with a tune.

You figured it out yet?
I beg you, don't bet

And on it I meditate
With care, I reiterate.

Vivid yet blurry,
Lucid and slurry,

I like these short-lived games
played without names.

One thing means all things
Everything's Incognito

My dear;

My dear, you have lost both your eyes,
And your ears are now torn,
I've lost your jacket and tie,
And the things you had before.
My dear, you've comforted me through the storms,
And you let me hold you so close,
Your fake fur was so comfortingly warm,
And without you I'd be suffocating, I know.
My dear, you were my best friend,
When I was in the darkness alone,
All the love that your small body could send,
Flooded my heart and let me send out my own.
I will always keep you so close, my dear,
Because even as a woman Iím not strong enough,
To be without you and face my fear,
Youíve made my fragile heart feel okay when otherís are rough.
My dear, I adore you,
And Iíll never be without you at my side,
But those words you already knew,
Because you gave me the courage as a child to no longer hide.

Once there

Beauty it possess
such clarity
depiction of you
Your smile
shining from the wall
eyes looking at me
where ever I walk
You left
banging the door
and you fell
crashing to the floor..
and you were so prized
until then
when you got swept
to the rubbish bin.
