Hello Poetry lovers…or maybe you’re just poetry dabblers. Whatever the case, and your current thoughts on the boiled-down marvel of words, here’s today’s poem. Share it, comment on it, like it or don’t.
Again, still open for submissions. I’m super excited to be featuring a beautiful poem next week from Jennifer Munoz, so stay tuned for that!
The World on Two Legs
If you knew the tremulous
white water that thrashes
against the rocky shores in my brain
When faced with your tear-stained cheeks.
If you knew the worry, and sleepless dark,
I live in for the sake of your safety
If you knew that you were my only shore
If you knew
You my solid ground
If you knew the depths of love
That arrived, right on time
with the pushing pain
The tearing and bloodied welcome
Sweaty brow, trembling thighs, weak from
40 weeks of creating
Such a miraculous being.
If you knew, If you really knew…
You’d never question how beautiful, how perfect
