With my fingertips,

I paint a story...

of absolute bullshit.

I cannot see beyond four pages,

I'm blind to technique and necessity.

I am always slapped in the face by boundries,

And I always cross the line.

So simple are my stories,

They lack virtue and righteousness.

Ah, Hell.

My poetry doesn't even make sense.

Talent is that word people used to describe something you're good at,

Gifted means you were born with it.

I'm shoved in between,

I can disguise my non-talent easily.

Yet, somehow, people start to know,

I cannot compose an acceptable piece of writing.

This is not self-pity, 

not fishing for complements.

Just thought poetry,

was supposed to be so fucking sad.
