I Am A Poet

I am a poet

I die on the inside while everyone is watching

I do not hide behind a smile

I cannot hide

I place my pain at the beginning of my poems until the end

There is never a period

Because I will never stop writing

And when my body leaves the earth

My soul will carry my words

And splatter them in your memory

A canvas I am thankful for
