Successor

May 15, 2013

Can a poem reference itself?
A monotonous inner dialogue
Of its own creation?
Can the words absolve one
From their darkest thoughts?
And can a poem be
That light, growing brighter
Through the cracks in the bricks
Laid and mortared by its author?
Can the words keep coming
From a place less known?
Are the questions
Even its to ask?
But they are indeed,
For even in self reference
It can exceed the thought
Of the creator.
If only it were understood.
