poetry by j matthew waters

Queen sacrifice

I’ve been stealing ideas out of thin air
and making them my very own
since the day I was born

I won’t pretend to lie
but my reality is based on fact
and though at times indisputable
I often find a need to prove myself

It’s true I discover raw inspiration
in a child’s song or a falling leaf
innocently singular and colorful
repeating itself in search of perfection

Her majesty is like a stranger
beautiful and approachable
leading me to believe her existence
is eternity personified
