Paper and ink

The only tools that help me think

Hoping it all gets better

While I try to keep down my last alcoholic drink


As I write to express what's on my mind

I still wonder if it's a waste of time

But lets put it like this

I want to write something

that isn't intense

So I sit back and think about what to write

Now you know what's keeping me up all night

thanks to the headache I must fight

Jotting down words

takes real might


I go to the bathroom

look in the mirror

turns out my image is not any clearer

but not writing a story

is the worst of my fears


I promised my parents

I would be more successful

now as I think about it

I just feel more resentful

The bumps in my path

are way more plentiful

there coming up way to fast

 I'll leave it at that


As I walk out of the bathroom

and return back to my desk

I come to a drawing conclusion

"I just need some rest"


As I wake up in morning

with bad breath and a hangover

ideas come to mind

as I try to get up but roll over


I write down my plot

and go to ask my friend about his thoughts

"Is it good or is it not?"

I ask and he nods


Months later the book is finished

for the first time in awhile

I feel replenished

but I still sit there and wonder

"Will people like what's in it"

killing and suffering

"Anyone interested?"


I have yet to overlook

I wrote a sad book




Hey guys:) I've been so busy writing

Revelance that I haven't been writing poems

as often as I would like to.

This poem is not as good as I wanted it to be

but I want you guys to tell me what you think

HAha, that rhymed ^^^^
