Poetry Written for Another Person

is different,
a stark contrast to poetry
written for one's self
(poetry at its rawest harshest kindest
truest form).

the farther the person is from the heart,
the fainter the beat will be. faint
fainter faintest, until there is
nothing more
to hear

but when
the person is
close closer closest,
the beat gets strong stronger
strongest, and convictions ululations
salutations damnations gush out from pen
to paper, finally reaching a crescendo where
the moment is invincible and the spirit is unstoppable.

poetry written for another person
is different,
a stark contrast to poetry
written for one's self, as different as
gems in a pirate's chest for the foreigner,
stars on a clear night for those we hold dear.

"truth between you and the other wrapped in words for all to behold." --> this is elegant. poetry to describe poetry.
