poetry by j matthew waters

testing the waters

each poem written is but a test
or a testament to life on earth
a mystery and a gift
beholden to one’s own beatitude

I told myself I would never be lonely
but here I am writing poetry
coming to terms with what
I may or may not believe

anything is possible I keep
telling myself
determined to declutter
my house of cards
all the while deleting
every unnecessary word
