Starving Poets Club by Damon E. Johnson

Diverse backgrounds and titles

unfamiliar names and faces

all searching for the voice inside

that will one day take us places

Seems we all could use a peaceful place

that’s detached from a colorless mood

especially when the comforts of home

no longer provide complete solitude

Joined together by the poetic passion

that runs rapidly through our veins

while individually yearning to be released

from life’s emotional chains

Some people write for fame and fortune

while others merely desire to vent, but

most of us would settle for a moment of clarity

even if we never profited one single cent

Excerpt from the book Rhythm In My Blues

Rhythm in My Blues by Damon E. Johnson

Rhythm in My Blues is a collection of poetry aimed at connecting with the reader on a mental, spiritual, and sensual level. Whether via classic rhyme, lyric, or free verse, the poems in this book possess such distinctive wordplay and clever musicality that they unlock the readers’ imaginations, giving them permission to smile, laugh, or cry.Citing Langston Hughes, Nikki Giovanni, and Maya Angelou as some of his greatest influences, Damon E. Johnson has delved deeply inside his own soul and found the words that truly display his creative expression. His words are like a song unfolding in your ears. Indeed he reminds us that there is genuine beauty in the eyes of a poet.
