Unstuck

Sometimes the words are stuck

Only the alphabet

A new poem is hard

Because I can't feel

Causing frustration


Then I hear it

"You got this. You can always write. Just sit and do it."


What voice do you hear that encourages you, your mom, a lover, God?


I hear a voice

The crane on my arm

The Muse


And so I write,

Not always well,

Deciding the letters

Efflorescence of emotion

Figuring my place


Have a positive voice in your head, one that urges you on

Your biggest fan

Your ride or die

Your constant companion

Images flicker in scratchy reels behind closed eyes Sweeping mouths with long wet tongues Inhale/Exhale Chests heaving like a cheetah after her sprint A Queen in heat How do you remember it?

The bravest act

What of the hearts of those who were apart Owned on separate lands miles away from their beloved As if These attachments have no value... they kept paired animals How does one survive with heart break
