All I Wanted Was Poems

Rating: 5.0
I didn’t want other kinds of words
I wanted poems
Because they helped me feel more alive
They gave me an intensity
No other words had-

They were songs and they were music sometimes
But even when they were not
Harsh and grating and angry and sad
Lost and lonely and tired and weak
They had in them
What my soul needed-

All I wanted was poems
And they came to me day and night
And they brought me meaning and life
And I was happy with them-
Shalom Freedman
