I am a songwriter, a poem for Nicki Aycox by Tracy Diane Miller

How long had I waited
How long I wanted to say these words
I am a songwriter
Now my music can be heard

Each chapter of my life
Is a song ready to be born
My emotions are the lyrics
And the rhythm my heart adorns

I am a songwriter
My Secret I can tell
My music is a reflection of me
A haunting intensity serves listeners well

I am a songwriter
When the Levee Breaks
Emotions pour forward
To become a listener’s to take

I am a songwriter
My guitar a part of me
Each chord has a mission
I no longer strain to see

I am a songwriter
Nicki Aycox is my name
I want to touch you with my music
Red Velvet Room gives joy all the same
