Because I am not afraid

In my solitude

of endless minds of starry skies

I travel through the darkest eyes

changing form and shape I breathe in

and out

for countless cycles

I move about—tiring of nothing

my penetrating gaze

shrouded in mysteries smoke and haze

that lingers on for days

and days

I know your type

I know you too

In my solitude I’ve been with you

A complex concept

that many won’t touch—too much

of a computational hazard but

who needs you

when the world is mine

I kissed the deity to make him shine

a world of light

and life on me traveling…

…traveling near and far

in my solitude

I shed my skin

and bare my head


this way and that with angel wind with

love and lust and prayers to send

I’m feeling cool and blue and dark

and wet and

for those who cannot see me as yet

I am a woman fulfilled with sweet desire

This is no mood




just me alone in my solitude

I really appreciate that you read my poem! I incorporated the principles of 'found poetry' and have given you two poems in one if you read only the bold print. A 'found poem' takes chunks of words, varying in number/length from a previously written work, with additions and deletions, and pieces them together like a word collage.

    This is ART. The bolded poem within a poem made my third reading even more rewarding—because I read this twice before noticing your note at the end, loving it so much. I’m a fan of your narrative voice and your auditory voice. What a gift you have!

    I don’t think I’ve ever related so strongly to a poem someone else wrote. I read this first, and I heard it in my inner voice. Then I listened to the powerful calm of your voice and loved it even more. 🤍

  • You go, Dani!

    This is a poetic masterpiece. I resonate deeply with your words as I too love my solitude, and your ending is straight fire. 🩵
