Best Poem of Kelly Kurt

I Can Promise Only This

You can ask anything of me and I will attempt
You can tell me to smile, when grief is my shadow
You can stick me with pins and require my stillness
Take all my possessions and demand more
You can mandate the improbable and I will comply
But I can promise only this
To do my best

Read the full of I Can Promise Only This

Fear

Fear is the thorn that protects the rose
The moat keeping knights from the castle
The darkness at noon
Failure before commencement
Fear is that illusion
That worry
That dread without substance
A hollow, echoing gremlin
The devils delight
