Happy World Poetry Day 2020 – We need words

We need words…
now more than ever
that bring us together
we need poetry and poets
and story tellers and artists
who weave tales
of hope, love, kindness and resilience
that we as mankind need to remember
during these uncertain and chaotic times
we need words
now more than ever…

That night – Napowrimo Day 9

That night
Your words were more honest
Than they had been in a long while
Not laced with the lies 
Your tongue had become accustomed to…
Caged Inhibitions of your heart erupted
Like mount Vesuvius
Drowning me
In the hot lava that poured out of your lips
Words you withheld with years of constraints
Words that I had always known in my heart
More pure than any drop of “ganga jal” or any holy water…
But then they said, ” it was just the whiskey talking.”
