Help This Lonely Heart

Poetry in it's infinitive nature, will
 find it's way, someday into a heart
 of gold, eyes will see, how I, yet still
scribed, an too place this in a bottle, to depart,

 Into rough open sea, where a swift wind,
 rolling waves send it on it's way,
 into slender finger tips surfing, signed
 embedded onto it's label are these words; Say,
you will love me after reading prose, so well designed,

 My method of communication, is my hope
 some young heart in this world, will find
 my bottle with it's cargo, reach for it's little rope
there this special someone, her words undefined,

 Takes to heart my poetic stanza's she reads,
 my little poem within, in an instant shall
 fall in love as if my poetry is confident to her needs,
at a time of sorrow in her life, when she needs a pal,

 Lonely also, a world apart abroad some open sea
 only swam this day for serenity, her peace
 salty ocean air, dreamy eyes gaze wide to see
 my poetic piece

She reads: I to will comfort you once you're here
 do wonder where you have been my entire life,
 my brown eye's see you love there
 you found my poem, in my floating bottle,
 be my life, be my Wife,

 You found my poetry a world away,
 this string you hold is attached to my heart,
 on this beautiful day,
 will destiny help this lonely heart for my Poetic Art

Perry Campanella

I first started writing songs, so I thought - at ten years-old ( so young ) I didn't let anyone see them and burned all for a great fire. I was later encouraged to write by a nun - a Catholic nun, whom did hear me singing while washing pots n pans, after which she provided me a slice of her pie and saidyou need to join our choir for the talent you have needs not pots n pans to drown-out your lovely voice; Shy then and now I did as she asked; So she would come -by to hear me sing. after which another slice of pie would be offered. We would sit together and write poetry and to this day I haven't washed a single pot or pan! Though I'll bet-ya I can "spot a poem to pen" more…
