    There is a river that flows within me
    Let’s call it POETRY

    When I’m lost in thought
    …deeply meditating upon my (invisible) flaws
    or overcome by sensations of jubilation…caused
    by rolling waves of “off the top” creation
    I feel the river pulsing
    Forcing its way out of me

    In written expressions…called
    POETRY.

    When I’m excited
    Desperate to highlight my day
    In “smooth motion” exclamations of scintillating word play
    About the exactness
    Of the blue blackness
    Coursing through ebony hued veins

    Its spillage writing the name
    POETRY

    That’s the river that flows within me
    Lapping at my soul
    Thrusting creativity upon me
    Regurgitating…“Make believe” and “fantasy”
    As sunset’s evening breeze wash over me

    The river flows…like white water
    On days like today
    When sunshine’s summer sun
    Makes me wanna say
    “I love you”
    In heavenly scents of brutal truths
    That fills the “river of the knowledge
    Of poetic blues”
    Known as
    “The Flow”
    Building in intensity as it goes
    Bursting forth in
    “Orgasmic Bliss”
    To kiss the cerebral cortex
    With the complexity of its (rush)

    This river is dying for release
    Its banks…overflowing with
    “Creativity”
    Enuff to fill the world with
    “Smiles of Joy”

    There is a river…that…flows…within me

    There is a river…that…is me.

    Poetry.
