UntitledSilent and sullen
She stands there alone,
Her beauty and power
A message unknown.
She sits and she waits
For one to come near
Who will love her and care for her,
Not leave her in tears.
A boy comes along
A child, nonetheless
Who made some mistakes
Some bad, I digress.
Now he's a man
Careful and old,
Sitting and waiting
Till she will behold
Him in his sadness
And undying love,
So that when he leaves
To the clouds up above
She will be there
And he will take her arm
And always will keep her,
Protect her from harm.
And happily in love
They always will be
Through trials and tribulations
Whatever it may be,
Because her power, her grace,
And her beautiful face
Are exactly the things that
He takes in good taste.
Her laughter, her smile
And love all the while
Surround and envelop him,
Hold him, comfort him mile by mile.
He knows that he has
Made painful mistakes
And through his dumb actions
His name, he's disgraced.
But try as he might
And try every day
He's scared he will lose her
Never see, a
You're Not A PoetYou’re not a poet because of strung words
Together on row upon row again
Of blank verse or perhaps liberal rhyme.
‘Slam’ all you want, other poets wonder;
Your ignorance of couplets a blunder?
Yes! I speak harshly, but it’s no gross crime,
To point with honesty failed verse of thine.
No real poet discards upper case words;
Lets prose crawl on paper like listless worms.
You seek to free verse of those stern letters,
Sever away bleak capital fetters,
But it doesn’t sing of great speech sublime,
Rather, it sneaks of writing in spare time.
Wait! before you throw me in the icy Rhine;
It’s hard to put verse together in rhyme,
To make our dull words sound great all the time,
Hear them ring out loud, like a clear clock’s chime,
Heralding a poet’s summer prime.
Yet the sacred muses weep at your crime;
Your pentameter mangled thick like slime,
The subject not gilded in raiment fine;
Your bold ink font, crystal waters divine
Tastes bitter to the ton
Keep in Touch!
