Poetry and…stuff

I do like roses,

Daisies too.

But poetry of flowers? Boo

I’ll eat a slice of cake, tastes nice

Satisfies my sugar vice.

A verse or two of ‘sweet’? Okay…

But honestly, that’s not my way.

A simile that’s overused,

Or darkened metaphors, abused

I can do those,

In fact I do,

Yet lately only Truth feels true.

Some free verse maybe, that could work…

where once trees blew in a soft, daggering wind

of chaotic nonsensical shapes of disjointed wordsΒ 

clinging to clinically dronedΒ 

airborne germs of diseased tainted love

that burrowed into the tenebrous ventricles left behind from my bleeding heart and….fuck knows.

I fight with meanings,

Battled twice

(I guess I could rhyme that with thrice)

You’ve made this very hard for me…

My love bleeds out in Poetry.

    1. I am a smarty pants when I want to be.

      Unfortunately, clichΓ©s can’t be avoided. Mostly they work fine of you don’t overdo them and pop something clever in the surrounding words!
      Happy you liked this and think I’m clever lol

      1. Sometimes, in an effort to avoid cliches – especially in chord progressions – I try some obscure chords. I do the same for lyrics, and they become so obscure that they’re not relevant to anyone. Sigh.

      1. You totally SHOULD smile about it! Whenever I’m feeling β€œmeh” about a piece I try to remember a quote I read somewhere that basically amounted to celebrate when you finish a poem/short story/ novel even if nobody else knows about it because you did something most don’t: you finished it. So live it up and be proud!!!!!!!!! ☺️☺️☺️☺️☺️☺️☺️
        Ps you’re grand too! πŸ”₯πŸ”₯✨πŸ”₯✨

      1. Very true anout Zeus. He dicked a little too much, which is why Hera always had the ass at him. Dead poets read everything and give advice to everyone. Poets are a tight knit community.
