Poetry Is...

Poetry
Is the art
Of weaving
Spiderwebs
To catch the
Butterflies
Fluttering
Within our
Ribcages,
To carefully snag
The gentle,
Ethereal wings
And set them
Free
To their
Natural flow
Of rhythm and rhyme,
To restore them
To their true
Nature,
Where they
Can set us
Free
In return...

Poetry
Is the art
Of chipping away
The marble
Of Michelangelo
To reveal
The secret patterns
Hidden within,
The buried treasure
Meter and verse
Concealed
Within
The shadows
Of doubt,
Prying away
To reveal
The unseen
That always
Existed,
Yet was
Invisible
Till now...

Poetry
Is the art
Of pyromania,
The science
Of sculpting
Raging bonfires
In the midst
Of the coldest nights,
The craft
Of pulling
Something
From nothing,
The skill of
Setting fire
To even
The darkest
And dimmest
Of hearts...

Poetry
Is the art
Of giving
And asking
Nothing
In return.
