I try not to force
myself upon you
But in my excitement
I give it away, it
Leaks out, beaming
from my chest and
My waterfall of words
My arms and hands
dancing to illustrate
the picture.
Take it, take me, feel it,
hear me, share in this excitement,
I simply can't help myself,
Like a tiger cub asserting her
physicality or a
kid goat bouncing high into
the air for the joy of flight
- Boundless energy -
Just cos I'm inspired.
Lit up, reserved no more,
I come undone
Unspool and fizz
Like I've been waiting
All day
Just for this.

I enjoyed this. It's full of freedom, great line "unspool and fizz."

I enjoyed the feeling of excitement and anticipation in this poem. It's a pleasure to read.

I like it. I like the animal imageries and how you used them to reinforce your ideas.

"Inspired" and an exuberant "waterfall of words," so full of movement and joy. I love your poems.
