The poetry I write are reflections
Some reflect the desires I've within me
Others reflect my deepest emotions
Still others reflect what I read and see
All I write are reflections of my soul
Each and every poem written from the heart
Some were painful to write and took their toll
Others gave me joy almost from the start
It gives me great pleasure to offer you
The thoughts and feelings I believe we share
Perhaps provide you an avenue
To see written what you might not dare
The words and feelings you've chosen to hide
The part of your soul protected inside
