Be My Knife

Be my knife. . . the instrument of penetrating precision
cutting through the emotional veils that smother
my spirit and blur the dreams so long nurtured.

Be my brilliant blade. . . forged by a purposeful mission,
whose force directs and guides each circumstance and
situation with an intellectual prodding.

Be my knife. . . be my strength, fill my heart and
conquer my soul.

Linda Sabo Raubolt

Linda’s bio: I never thought of myself as a poet. In fact, the only poetry that I ever read was that of Emily Dickinson and Charles Bukowski. Somewhere in between these poles of humanity, out popped this poem from my “intuitive energy space.”

    Glad you allowed your “inner poet” to emerge long enough to give us these powerful lines.

    Thank you for this.

    Linda, I think your “intuitive energy space” is the poem that you live. Thank you for sending us this message from the inside.

    It always amazes me what happens on the “inside” with you. Loved the poem and can’t wait for more of your intuitive energy.
