Why Do Poets Paint

The spoken words may sometimes be lost

Only some spilled paint may show

The true feelings

That has been kept hidden away

For far too long they say


Every poet have lost something

Something far too valuable to say

A heart can’t take

Will it ever be unbroken?

With some spilled words

After its written

Will words ever heal a wound?


Is the pain gone?

Faded even?

Oh, how I wish I could be a poet

Capable of letting go


Some painted words

Plead to make sense in my head

I’ll turn you into poetry

Missing you in one place

Searching for another

You are my poetry
