    thoughts hidden in silence
    what expression will my feelings don
    today
    a broken veil
    a smile "also known as" to others
    a cold naked unstretch canvas
    waiting to be adorned in
    life's pleasant art

    thoughts crippled
    maybe they need to parked in the
    handicapped zone for
    days until some good soul
    decides to tow them away
    and
    ..........destroys them
    I could leave directions
    for their destruction
    'place in compactor and press
    START"
    maybe it could
    be sold as
    art as a "a poets pain"

    artist?

    a poet's pain...

    aaahhhh...

    a wishing well
    of immence depth
    from which
    inspiration is drawn

    ...wondrous portraits
    of lasting beauty
    are painted
    as the artist's brush
    strokes
    each verse
    ...stroms each cord
    that tells the story of
    yet another void
    that must be filled
    by another
    ink stroke.

    PAIN...
    when handled accordingly
    can be a thing of beauty
    ...conveyed
    in such a way
    to touch the soul
    of another

    like ME

    my brutha.

    LET THE COMPACTOR GO...GET RID OF THE INSTRUCTIONS FOR DESTRUCTION...WALK AWAY FROM THE HANDICAPPED ZONE. leave all that, alone. step away from the pain...the silence...the broken veils stretched across a cracked canvas...step into the LIGHT and be reborn

    LEAN ON ME...WHEN YOU'RE NOT...

    anyway...YOU KNOW.

    what u scribe is more then i can feel
    a poet's pain is untouchable within
    self yet one can fine peace in the hand
    of motions as one lay to canvas

    Blak....

    I love this piece so much that its reflective of someone who is in deep thought.

    I know you won't mind that I have copied it to the other forum (quiet/peaceful lounge) so that you can get some love in there on this as well!
