    Detachment
    From the words, the letters
    The sounds
    Each syllable, accent, and phrase
    Separation from the love
    Of the art to make
    To make
    To create
    To destroy!
    The beauty! The wonderful beauty!
    Of powerless fingertips
    Speechless movements
    And yet profound in speech
    Detach me!
    Detachment from the craft!
    Silent woes, echoes, repeats of misprints, typos, black outs
    Droughts!
    Separation
    From the love of
    The art to make
    To create
    To destroy
    To be.
    Manifesting words, through art
    Like through words
    Beginning with a movement
    A thought
    A letter stroke
    Pause.
    Detachment from all simple, sane.
    And all signs that simple is sane,today!
    Detach me from structure!
    Sounds, rules, and limits
    Because beauty lies in unconformity.
    The wonderful beauty. The beauty of wonder. The power in ponder. And the magic in the art... To make
    To create
    To destroy.
    To be!
    Detaching mind from society
    From reality
    From dream fantasy
    Allowing ink to dry in
    Soaking though
    Drenching with emotion
    Yet neither slowed by contiplation.
    Detachment from my body
    So that my soul can breathe.
    So that my heart can speak.
    And my internal drive
    My love to the art
    To make
    To create
    To destroy
    To be can live on.
    Around me
    Written
    As is.
    Detachment from question.
    And just be.
    Written.

    BRAVO!

    This was OUTSTANDING! :bowdown:


    But my favorite line was this:
    Now me, with my sense of humor, got a chuckle from that one! Cuz, what's "sane" TODAY, may not be sane tomorrow. LOL

    But, I enjoyed the whole! You explained and explicated the very ESSENCE your pen and poetry, your emotions thoughts! Again, this was simply EXQUISITE!
