Autopsy of a Poem

A good poem comes from the heart

It makes you feel the writer’s tears

His fears and joys his anguish at life

A good poem can make you laugh

It can make you cry out in anger

A good poem can leave you spellbound

Weaving you into a  hypnotic trance

Taking you to places that no drug ever could

No matter the rhyme or the reason for the poem

The technical aspects of the written piece

Don’t matter much to the reader if it grabs you

A good poem is about conveying thoughts

Not sympatico aligned verses set just so

It doesn’t mean a thing if it doesn’t bleed
