Ode to Poe
You may not know me, but I am honoured to know you.
Your dark, brooding brow, furrowed with years of pain and grief.
I watch and listen, hoping to see the real you...
wishing you had not had to suffer so,
yet thrilled by the words you would not have otherwise.
How magnificent your mind!
How much suffering in silence?
Did your peers feel your sorrow, as I do today?
What masterpieces would have filled the void
if you had not bled upon the page for us?
So many questions I would ask you in silence...
You may not have enjoyed a life of simple pleasures,
but know this now...
You are loved still.
