can you see the sorrow behind

my smile/ the love behind my

my anger/ and the reason behind

my silemce?

as stated to trust only somebody

who could! the poet muses about

this quote by Love Wide Open on


perhaps his muse could/ or so

he may often had the feeling

deep inside him that she would

have that sixth sense/ so often

talked about –

especially if a poet had met

a potential soulmate

who cares about his art.

i’m blessed/ he muses/ as life

still may hold one or more surprises

in store for him

building-up a last ditched effort

for seeing thru’ a year of waiting

for a chance of exhibiting his art

an undertaking already been given.
