ILLUMINATION

Instead of a Love Letter

I could pen you a sonnet

I could pen you a sonnet
a love song, a ballad
stamp a brilliant sleeve of
lyrics atop your skin

vibrant verses bubbling ink
so psychedelic that
Juliet will spread her wings
to soar past the Milky Way

I pen poetry about love and loss, what I observe and experience — I write about hope. My writing has been described as resiliently defiant.
