Here’s my poem about how poetry heals me!

The Magic of Poetry

I stand under the starlit sky

Perplexed, shattered, heartbroken

Searching for a lamp to light the moon

Raging with love, I look unto Thee,

When the aroma of words sanctifies the zephyr

And poetry embraces me

My heart calls out to heaven

I drown in the sea of emotions

Astounded by world’s impassiveness,

I seek joy in the arms of my lover

I flow with the stream of love

I find poetry flowing with me

I escape from the city of fears and disbelief,

Seeking solace in solitude

In solitude, I pursue my answers

The true purpose of my being

I become one with my soul,

I find verses beholding me!
