Amber Conclusion (before all is said and done)
by Ginette T Belle
The premise of my inquiring mind?
It all began when my heart decided to speak to me
In quiet whispers, intravenous
Rising to a piercing scream, cradled in my ear
Cross swords scarifying
The map of my mellifluent body revealed piece by piece
Pathetic language injected from within
Spreads through my veins, leaking
Poor resplendent soul
Sweet and full of good things
Source of my curious thoughts
God forbid a rippleless road
Could be laid out before me
To prance and indulge as I please
Alas the storybook seems to never end
With harrowing words teetering on the pages
When it started? I cannot say
But the aura still lingers

What an imaginative way to describe inspiration and the stirings of the creative spirit! ...
My favorite lines: "God forbid a rippleless road/ Could be laid out before me" and "Poor resplendent soul" Lovely poem, indeed.
