This poem is whole.

I have heard
people complaining
about writers
not writing
their whole heart,
always trying
to hide some part.
And I have seen
people trying to
explore
the unknown;
like writers
are not people,
like they are
not their own.
And I always think
why is that so after all?
So here
I’m putting
my whole heart
(with all the pieces)
in this poem
and now
This poem is whole.

  1. Always has been whole. We share a lot more than words, sometimes more than even we know. It is not the writer’s problem if readers have all the shutters and doors of their mind closed and locked.

  2. I appreciate how you said it authentically….here’s my whole heart. The reader gets to interpret what that looks like. (to me, I’ve read several of your pieces and it looks purely seeking and curiously kind!)

  3. I always try to say something meaningful when I’ve read something that strikes a chord with me. But all I can say is thank you for sharing this poem, it is beautiful. ♥

  4. I love your poem due to its authenticity and because you’ve addressed a life-long issue: the truthfulness of self-expression in art. Virginia Woolf once said: “Every secret of a writer’s soul, every experience of his life, every quality of his mind is written large in his works.”
