    I like your work.
    I see alot of parallels with my own work;
    emotion, depth, meaning always diffused in a light of words.

Best Poem of edward lilley


I awaken feeling full and potent
Swollen with urgency
Lines of verse moving forward in me.
Impatient words piling up like traffic
Fully formed, fingers, tongue, lips, and hands
Waiting to fly
Needing to be caught,
Held gently, dried off,
Given room to breathe.

I must quickly make my way up out of the tangle
Of old dreams and bedclothes
Find a pen
And catch these wisps
Open my arms and claim them
Open my mouth and name them

Get a basin. Boil water.
We have made it through the night
From the furnace of my resistance

Read the full of Deliverance
