poetry is heartbreak
poetry is watching everything you love become everything you hate
it's racing to the bottom of every single bottle;
as if there is something or someone to find
it's hearing your mother cry
smelling flowers and smelling death
poetry is heartbreak, tears and sleepless nights
poetry is feeling your fathers pain as he looks you in the eye
poetry is feeling the hunger grab you and pull you in
it's pain and anger
it's homeless and cold
poetry is a summer breeze hitting you in the face
poetry is like darkness gripping you and taking you away
it is hoping for a better day than yesterday
poetry is an 8 year old boy and a 7 year old girl
most of all; poetry is the tears of a little girl calling for help
