My Poem “The Touch of the Poet”

We can all be touched by someone...
we can all touch someone physically
as well as emotionally;
but there is no touch
like the touch of a poet
to conjure thoughts and feelings
unrivaled by any other.

The touch of a poet
is one of spellbinding magic...
the touch of a poet
is one capable of inspiring another
with ideas they may not
have thought of before...
the touch of a poet
is one that can impact more
and delve deeper -
though the time and the pressure
that a poet exerts may only be tender.

The touch of a poet
is one that is unforgettable...
the touch of a poet
is one that is unbelievable...
the touch of a poet
is one that is undeniable.

The touch of the poet is one that connects
the world of fantasy to the world of reality...
the touch of the poet can mean more
than any previous touch that someone
may have had before they were
impressed by the embrace
of the poet's multi-faceted poetry...
the touch of the poet can turn lust into love...
the touch of the poet is one that you can
take into your heart, connect to your soul,
and always trust.

Whether people know it, or not,
everybody alive has at one time or another
looked into the eyes, has been in the presence,
has been given the gift of the words
that have the power to influence, to transform,
to embolden, to dream, to make someone's heart
beat so fast that they have to catch their breath -
and that is the indelible touch of the poet.
