I express myself through poetry
Where only true poets can understand
I spend late nights on my bed
With a notebook and pencil in hand.
My friends and family really don't know me
As much as they think they do
No on really dose
I like it that way too.
It is hard to tell people what is inside you
When you can't find the words to explain
And when you do it is not what you meant
It always sounds so plain.
Few people ever express their soul
Those who do are stronger than the rest
Others are to scared to say it
Not wanting to put their heart to the test.
As stupid as you feel
After pouring out your heart
When always ending up hurt
At least it is a start.
Everyone else is too afraid
To admitting things so true
So they keep it all locked up
It all comes back to you.
You are the poetic soul
Who stands up strong
Ending up broken
It won't last long.
Even if you end in pieces
I am always here for you
Just remain your poetic soul
And I will be your glue

Sometimes, you go forward of your years, yet it may be me, for you speak of what you seem to know. I am not sure. Your poetic soul is a pool of truth, expressed in a woman's way, deep waters reveal, common truths. The difference between you, Leah-06 and truth is simple, you know the truth and like hearts, who search for love, they trail,and follow your words, and hope that one day, they will catch up with you. Use caution, for you may be far to wise, beyond your heart's ability, go slow and we will find you there, as others such as I, strive to get there.
