Poetry 101 by Richard Lighthouse

how do i look so far?
i am as alive as you.
possessing consciousness and purpose.
we are structures that
seek others.
i exist that you might study yourself
and creativity’s nature.
i am a bookmark in time
holding frozen emotion
gifting students
with self-fragments and meaning.
i live in volumes of intensity.
expressing mankind’s ideals,
and gathering the mental children
we nurture and grow.
bring me close. smell the ink.
tell me what you feel.
