Unmitigated Blues

Poetry is my song and dance
When I don’t wish to be bothered or talked to
Poetry is my friend, with him there are no egos
He lets me be me
Simple, free, uninhibited me
I free my mind openly with poetry
He is my muse
His gentleness dances warmly
With my often random moments of sadness

[Hata Bildir]
