Poem: The Poet's Confession

The Poet's Confession

It is not my sensitivity that makes me a poet,
for I feel forever adrift in the nuances
of heart and soul,
always grasping to understand
the world beyond the words,

the things that mere mortals
just know.

So do not seek wisdom in these sparse verses,
for all you will uncover
are my stumblings in darkness,
my search for the door.
