voices from poets I admire

This is not a small voice but a lake

She bends over me

Sucking the bones

Spitting closed vowels each morning

Tasting desire –

The kind of love that is draining.

I hold, searching my reaches,

I want….. someone

Who energizes me

A face that replaces the darkness.


Lines taken from these poets who inspire me:

Sonia Sanchez, Robert Frost, Sylvia Plath, and Rupi Kaur.
