A poet will never be taken by his words
He'll be seen as seeking attention
But what he is seeking is nothing he'd mention
Because he knows his metaphors create the Roughest tension
The poets lungs overflow with similes
And his in between his teeth are commas
and down in his stomach are the seas of lyrics.
Ones that heal the drama.
His mouth curves at the slightest rhyme
As he turns a paper into homicidal crime
He's the sneakiest at this
Creating a mess of black blood
Is something of bliss.
A writer isn't insane
Nor is he in pain
But know when you talk
He will take your wild words
And tame them in his name
A poet who is screaming in frustration
Is not a poet at all
A poet embraces his talent
He doesn’t force the words to fall
