Poetry by Jeff Green


What it means to me

Poetry opens the doors to my soul
Spinning the magic that makes me complete
Reading and writing it’s always my goal
Prose in a novel is never as sweet
Artistry gives me the keys to my life
Telling the tales that my heart can’t ignore
Words on a page I would take as my wife
Filling and thrilling and willing for more
Dreams are now verses to tangle my mind
Metaphors dance from the things that I know
Moving my thoughts to explore what to find
Clearing the surface to see what’s below
    Writing my life down has changed what I see
    Poetry alters the meaning of me
