Poetic Wax (Poetry)

Poetic Wax” is a poem about poetry, how it can manage to make even the most depressing story into something beautiful and wondrous. In essence, the true power of poetry lies in its ability to take sadness and transform it into artful melodies of beauty, no matter what story one tells.

Inject the poor soul with poetic wax
A formula one for sweet sounding tracks
Left you a cold one with cinnamon fizzy
One soul’s track is another one’s dizzy

Man walks alone and his soul turns to dust
The Woman gives in to a heart full of lust
She seeks her fortune with unbridled force
He suffers consequence of sudden divorce

By dark of night are written sad stories true
In the air hints of decay as the vultures flew
With manuscripts buried in thick paper stacks
Tales of misfortune preserved now in wax
