My Poetry Is

written by: devereaux frazier



My poetry

is long-awaited sunset

on a lover’s winter night

My poetry

is a flashlight on the entrails

of the horror film called Life

My poetry

is a camera

on the heart of Titanic


but tormented


and cursed

My poetry

is an anchor

and a mast

a tsunami

and a covenant


from the conflicted


behind near perfect diction

My poetry

is the other side of the railway tracks

The backside

catching all the jack

Telling my truth

emasculates me

to that of a bee

giving little

but losing all

so you might avoid

where I’ve stumbled

and crawled

My poetry may be autistic

from hands suddenly active

but the lips are rigid

and mind narrow

My poetry may be saddening


or nothing to you at all

but it’s my lifeline




that’s my heart aching

and another poem

that needs your saving
