Inspiration comes from the depths of the mind
Which is triggered by the feelings and
Emotions of the body.
That in turn, transcends into an outpouring of words,
Which struggle to actively express,
The torments of the soul.
This is known as Poetry.


I put my finger on
The pulse of your mind
Then wait,
To see what is delivered
Unto me.

If I can reach through to you
Not with the words that I have written
But with the words I have not written
The indeed, I have accomplished something.
