Who I Am

This is the second half of the conversation we had as I heard "Slut" that very first time. I haven't written a non-senryu/haiku poem since college (over 20 years ago). So, to watch my fingers type "For So Long" onto the computer screen with little to no input from my conscious brain was pretty amazing.  But to watch another poem pour itself out after mine was as close to a religious experience as I've ever had.  I knew he wasn't aware of what he had written...I had to tell him to look at what was on his monitor. Here it is for you to share...

Who I Am  
   by E.M. Phoenix     5/21/2010
music...and my writing...
are the best ways into my soul
who I am
what I am
me without pretense
without facade
or any kind of hidden...

and I speak
from those places within
through other peoples words
their music
and the music of my own passions 
spilled out through my words
that is who i am
this is who i am
