Ode to Dickinson…

As if I could not stop to see
Death kindly stood by for me
Rhyming away originality
And stealing from Emily…

As if a poem could ever be
Of hers or mine we simply see
A style of verse she sung my soul
And still I aim to reach…

A spirit she came a ghost she was
And yet she spoke quietly
As if the voice was my own
And yet it was hers that set me free…

Her always adoring number one fan…


About Michael Medlen

My name is Michael and during my free time I avoid having a day job. Strangely enough, this gives me the freedom to run this blog. I write just about anything that can be considered art. I also occasionally post articles that may or may not be relevant to the theme of this site. You’ve been warned.
