Spirited Heart


Far beyond where the mind can reach
There's a place so close you can hear it speak.
It speaks proportions unlike many have ever heard;
And, yet, you'll never hear a word.
Some build walls around it to protect it,
And some will merely neglect it.
People abuse it
Rattle it and break it.
Few will rarely take it; but,
The ones who do will make it.
Make it smile, make it sweet.
Make it melt in a heavenly treat.
Far beyond where the mind can reach
Is a place so close you can hear it speak.
It speaks volumes some of you may've heard;
Still, you never heard a word.

This Poems Story

I am a born and bred Texan. When I was younger I didn't do much outside of school studies. Venturing into a community college setting led me down the road of burnout. After many years of struggling with addiction and sexuality, I finally found that light at the end of the tunnel. That light turned out to be the greatest man I've ever known, aside from my dad that is. So, now I find myself at the hands of my imagination and bringing it to life. Thank you, my beloved Thomas.
