Poetry of the Flesh

Updated on February 12, 2018

Bella is a student in Houston Texas, always reading, writing, loving and learning.

I put my pen to stark white paper

Spelling love with crimson ink

It's been a long time since I have written

But I'm poet and I like to think,

That I can make people's pain better

When I imbue words with blood and bone

And the only way to breathe life into letters

Is by draining out all of my own.

      Wow. Great poem. Really like this one. There is something about writing where one loses oneself in the process.
