"I go to seek a great perhaps."

passion jumps

into your arms


grabs you by the shoulders.

Your eyes are caffeine make me

want more even though I've always

hated brown.

Your eyes are a

seaside dock in front

of a picturesque dawn,

and a tower of bricks higher

than God's spirit.

Your lips are a love


up those bricks

through the cracks

(Ivy walls)

Hugging my veins.

Your hands are tools

that have seen the magic of the floating


and so

much more.

Those hands see the veins

in a wrist begging for attention 

becasue they know how

important they are;

flowing with the black and white blood

of a poet's love.

All ink-filled branches

leading to a beating

blank canvas

full of the beautiful creations whining

like a dog to be free.

Because you are passion

and your entire being is


Invade a tower and build upon its


Let all those words--

breathe out of your being

and write

This is really interesting. I liked the descriptive style. The first time I read it through, I was certain you were talking about love, but then I read the last verse and did a double take, and I found that the poem also pertains to writing. Excellent work!

It is really good piece of work. i like how you used simple motives and put them in an unique ensemble - something unexpected but really firm and with sense. Also, I too, like the structure of the poem. Nice writing!

Wonderful poem! I loved the structure (or rather, lack of structure) that you used. I myself am an avid supporter of the freedom of free-verse poetry, so it brings me joy to see others utilizing this freedom :) But, aside from that thought, I think you had some beautiful pieces of imagery in this poem. I'm being 100% honest when I say I was thoroughly impressed with your words and the way you weaved them together so expertly into beautiful pictures. I especially loved the bit about veins in a wrist and ink-filled branches. Really, a truly remarkable piece of work, thank you for sharing!
