Poets Dance - Poem by Tonelius Oliver

Poets Dance in the heart of rhythms
Discussion spoken in the pen
Energy being tampered with in the music
Limitations rarely occur in audio-silence
Artist writes from the heart of rhythms
The Poets are dancing
Flaming hot ink drips from the pen
The paper it's a sacrificial victim
It just seems to lay still
there's no escape when the Poets Dance
Rhythmic heartbeats offset the confrontation
of clumsy feet
To tap dance on paper is a joy one must experience
to fully appreciate
It’s not for the faint-hearted

    Now this is a stunning poem. I note your main style to be free verse, which obviously allows for more freedom. This piece grabbed me, tugged at my heart and reminded me why I write. Well done. A truly worthy poem. Rosemary (Report)Reply
