Literary elements 

Tend to go unnoticed 

But that’s one thing 

I am actually good with 

 

I learn though metaphors 

Without opening doors 

 

Intuition gets the best of me 

Since that not how really I see 

I need you 

To help me though

You have a stinger 

And I’ll be your singer 

 

A scorpion knows when to strike

Inside he wields a golden knife

To some it may be toxic

But not if you harness it 

 

Some may eat them 

So they can defeat a friend

They put them in candy

But that always scared me

 

People say its your power 

But over you I naturally tower 

It looks to me like wasted potential 

I always knew they were special 

 

Intuition gets the best of me 

Since that not how really I see 

I need you 

To help me though and

Since you have a stinger 

I’ll be your singer 

 

But I have no experience 

Just in case you weren’t hearing it 

I’ll write some songs

To prove the evil wrong 

 

But I need something to inspire 

And your story help burns my fire
