Oh, We Poets
Michelle A. Bartley

Oh we poets, scribes, and bards,
Writing words with ease,
When love has left us destitute,
And brought us to our knees.

Each single letter hits the page,
Like shards of broken glass,
Attempting now to resurrect,
The feeling from the past.

Oh we dreamers, hopeful lot,
Will words heal the pain,
If we pen them long enough,
Will all of us stay sane?

Or will we simply dip our pens,
In wells of bloody red,
Trying hard to satisfy,
This voice within our head?

Oh we fools, when will we see,
When will we understand,
That every poem in which we write,
Though coming from our hand.

Is sent to us from somewhere else,
From somewhere way up high,
And holds a sacred message,
Solely for you and I.

For every line upon the page,
That speaks of love and light,
And every verse that comes with tears,
That brings sorrow and fright.

Tells tales of a special love,
Connected to our soul,
In vain attempts to reconcile,
And one day make us whole!
