I hide behind layers of onion like skin
you can’t see my soul, what is within?
I am a fragment of the universe
you will never realise my true worth.
All the words I mean to say and have said
the pages I have written the poet bleeds,ink I have bled
read the words I have written
explore the meaning and be smitten.
Look within the cage of my soul
lightening strikes but my inspiration is out of control.
The artist in me yearns for grandeur
I want you to see my muse and understand her
wisdom and strength through love
the push and shove
of life gets in the way
But I define the path from which I don’t stray.
