“The Poet” (Poetry)

amelia phoenix desertsong

“The Poet”  is a poem about, um, a poet?

The poem is my strength
This verse is my refuge
Sweet music salves my soul

Good tunes I can’t refuse
Yet my tongue’s desert-dry
And won’t hit a sweet note

But the words never die
Melody lives on in 
This broken, bleeding heart

The best poets never doubt
Their truths will make you cry
Whether it’s in laughter
Or in sudden despair
