Straight to my Heart


When I read words I love
They go straight to my heart
A deliciously, sweet
Wrenching
Painful in the best of ways
They kindly tear me apart
I read them again
Slowly tasting them
Quenching my thirst
As I drink deeply
From its nectar
Balancing all the flavors
On my tongue
Life-giving blood
In beautifully
Arranged letters
And words
Called poetry
