admiration poem by steven james humphreys

life, the bold journey

learning to be oneself…

we bled so alongside our paths

living the divine poetry

each moment

to our next.

the exquisite motion

of our lives

trapped in timeless

dusty book page printed words.

those sentences

they stay hidden in mental darkness,

within our secret bookshelves

feeding our

troubled heads

seeping upward

through unconsciousness,


tempting us

in admiring formless faces

inhabiting a solemn heart

rattling the door to what we are

that distant hero who lies under

lock and key waiting for his release

shaking him gently so he wakes

within again another paragraph of insight

into his own shattered human psyche.
