Raw Poetry

by Baby Rainbow   Feb 27, 2014

Sometimes as poets,
we bury ourselves
in fancy words and metaphors
to create such vivid imagery.

We explore new avenues
and learn techniques,
trying to capture the intensity
of that precise moment in time.

Often we discover ways
of disclosing our secrets,
our most inner pain and truth
disguised in a scene of beauty.

And every now and then
we let go of all our tools
and all that we have learned,
we simply use the ink
from our hearts, and the
tears from our eyes,

and we pen the most beautiful
masterpiece that has been created
from our soul.

    I adore Baby Rainbow's simplistic angle she has taken here with this piece. It's an inspirational delight. She focuses on the real and true meaning of writing and how the writing can get twisted within creative and art, in the end.. Hiding the true emotions within the message the writer is trying to express.
    It is very difficult at times for a writer to map out raw feelings and emotions within a poem or any form of writing and Baby Rainbow explains this from start to finish!

    Truly a touching write!

    I agree. Poetry is many things but nothing if not true to ourselves. When we write, we leave a fragment of ourselves and every poem is another window to who we are. Sometimes we hide and sometimes we attempt to change but sometimes we are just ourselves and that is when our poetry becomes us. xx
