The Poet

The heart of the poet is ageless
She throws off the cloak of time
And dances away with her senses
Melting hearts with the words she combines

Never a moment is wasted
When her mind is not penning a rhyme
Revealing a heart that is naked
As it pumps out a story divine

She proclaims moments of love everlasting
Then broken hearted she shares the despair
Of lost loves that were promised in passing
Then waits as her heart is repaired

She spins stories that willingly capture
Your heart, your mind and soul
As she fashions a verse full of splendor
In a way only she can extol

She is an artist that paints but a picture
Of cadmium, violets, and blues
Her words blend a lovely pallet of colors
As the portrait of her life is effused

And if you but listen quite closely
A faint melody you will hopefully hear
As she composes a symphony so sweetly
Of laughter and joy mixed with tears

Golden tongue flames burn internal
For others years later shall find
That the heart of the poet is eternal
And knows not to answer to time

It is so beautiful, bluest of blue,
As I was reading this, I thought it was me I was reading about, it sounds so true, I wish it was me! The setiments are exactly the ones I express in my poetry.
Well, they say that if your poem makes someone feel that you have taken the words out of his or her mouth, then your poem is successful!
So yours is perfect1

Plato said, 'The soul never thinks without a pictute'. Here I think of every poet as "an artist that paints but a picture" as you do. I have really enjoyed reading this poem of yours, and am going to read more of your work.
