A Poem Written for Dentro de min (Inside Me) by Helena Almeida

When pen is called to paper and I am called to cast my will upon such words that will compliment distinguished works. That is a moment to revel as camaraderie both connects us as persons and purveyors of such dynamic art…

Welcome to the World of the Raw

what’s inside is out

what’s outside is in

leaving tortures of tourism

to all but weigh in

I’ll close down my doors

to these tourists of will

I’ll shut down access

and drink til’ I fill

my body with beauty

the kind I can’t name

living within me

I shutter in shame

don’t leave me behind

but, will me away

don’t turn me aside

just never say…

that you’ll stay

poetic prose – tanyajo
