I’m trying something new although normally couplets aren’t my thing
Eager to sink my
teeth into a new style never have I been this keen
I can do anything as long as I have the Lord on my team
Easier to say but harder to do more so often it seems
My abilities include all of the above but are not limited to
Free verse, rhyming, tankas, villanelles, kyrielles and haikus
I challenge myself in order to get better at what it is that I do
Practice makes perfect which is unquestionably very true
Whenever I conjure up a new idea inside of my head
I take my pen and slice the words like a loaf of bread
Desperately I try to stay sober by taking these prescription meds
But I’m allergic to pen and paper and this is what I end up with instead
I can never ever seem to fight the urge that is running through my veins
So I just allow it to surge causing random words to emerge from the flames
This is not a game unlike everyone else I’m not the same deep inside of me I have this wild feeling that I just can’t tame like a sharp shooter I load my bullets and just aim ready to fire one in your head and let your brains splatter and it’s so amusingly insane that I have complete control over what these couplets will contain through my writing power is what I will sustain although I have a reputation to maintain nothing but respect is what I hope to gain ya see this is my way of repairing the broken shards of glass inside of my mirror frame raw passion and desire is what my body is craving I can feel it burning inside of me and when my body needs saving I just come to my journal it’s my escape, my vacation, my catharsis and to all the haters out there y’all can just disregard this because y’all have no emotions anyway y’all are completely heartless this is an ode to my pen and pad man I definitely heart this so you motherfuckers can just suck a dick and drink the sweat up under my armpits bitch!
