I am but an open journal Still waiting for a discovery, Empty pages within to drift. Desiring to feel your warmth upon The black leather that binds me. The soft caress of the wisdom Of velvety words for kissing. Left drifting in the breeze A melody without notes. For my love affair with words That dance through futuristic Pages of time.
I am the tender sweetness like sugar Of my yearning soul With dreams yet to come alive. I cry out to you awaiting your thoughts Your desires, glimpses of your personality Passions quilled upon the lines of my sculpted mold.
Yet I am but a baby naked, blowing empty Pages Into the ebony starlit night. Cold and alone, not a letter insight No scribbles of rainbows ink Splattered upon my virgin parchment. No stories to pass on in time.
I am awaiting the screaming orgasm of My birthing into a new world With visions and images that Tower over me setting me free No longer a virgin of words Born again with pen in hand.
Pastel Colors of the wheel splattered Upon my emptiness here within my mind. I am but a thought away, The history I’ve come from The present I am living within The future I have yet to see. Just a visionary imagined or not, I am the poet!
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Eva Marie Ann Cagley
I was born and raised in Waterloo Iowa, where I spent most of my time working with teenagers
in a group home and at a Juvenile Detention Center as a counselor. Working with teenagers
gave me great joy, having had none of my own… I come from a large family of nine children
having six brothers and two sisters. I have always had a love for poetry. It has always been a
dream of mine to publish a book of my own poems. My first interest in poetry was when I was in
Sixth grade English class and we were studying Robert Frost. I have always had a passion for
poetry and believe it is a gift from God…It gives me great pleasure to share my poetry with
others. There's little else to say about me as my poetry reflects whom I am. My beliefs,
perspectives, trials and tribulations, hopes and despair, dreams of all my lives’ journeys…
Given with love I leave you now with a place Where Poets Dream!
