My Poem “Return of the Poet”
Even though, at times, I may have ventured "Too Close To The Sun", I will always be the "Poet of the Sphere"... even though I have written about "The Wolf in Me", "The Wolf in You", "The Wolf in Us" and "Vega - The Vampire King", I will always emanate "The Sound of Mark"... even though I have been "Playing God", I will always be "The Eternal Boy"... I will always be "The Dreamer and The Dream"... I will always love "Truly Madly Deeply"... I will always be "The Rambler"... I will always be the "Poet of the Multiverse"... I will always be "The Comeback Kid"; because, even though I have stories within me that I believe are just waiting to be told, poetry is my life's blood... poetry is my voice... poetry is my epic flood... poetry is my universe within which I do not have a choice - because poetry is my destiny, it always has been and it always will be... poetry has brought me gifts of connection... poetry has always been within me... there isn't a day that goes by when I do not open my eyes and see the light of inspiration... there isn't a day that goes by when I do not listen and hear the rhythm of life's music in unison with my multi-layered imagination... even when things seemed to be coming to the end of their calling, I always believed that whenever the time arose when I might need to be renewed, the one within would climb, like a "Rising Star", and there would no longer be any limits - because, like a shooting star in the night sky, there would be no stopping the return of the poet.
