poetry by j matthew waters

behind the alibi

alone I wander the sea
of dreams
just me and my alibi
and yellow submarine

beneath the depths of
deserted space
shooting stars sail on
outside the alibi

old borders collapse
new realities emerge
compressed and
and living a new lie

    I enjoyed this poem. I really like how you have an audio version of your poems at the end of each posts.

    • Thanks so much for visiting and commenting on this piece, Kirsten. I’ve always been a fan of the spoken word and believe poetry is better when read out loud. 😀

        I’ve done a couple of spoken word posts on my blog. I hope to do more once NaPoWriMo is over. Although, I’m not very good at reading my poetry out loud. 🙂
