Pen is mightier than the sword

Pen is mightier than the sword
Writing what I think, before I say it!

Friday, June 8, 2012


Didn't stick to the topic
made my poem lose its focus
read more in between my mind
then I was reading between the lines
one stanza too many
a metaphor that was adlibs in commas
made the poem become uncomfortable
didn't know my love for words,
would make me lose my momentum
all that my poem ever wanted was a good flow
to be titled untitled without being titled
watching as my pen walk away in disappointment
pen was so happily never after
now pen and paper will not collab
and I swore in my sleep
I heard hard drops fall to wood floor
waking up the next day
to a crime scene of blue ink like puddle
and my pen, lying dead in the center
paper decide to cover pen as a blanket
but warmth was too late for inks cold(code)blue
Poetry blames me for this misunderstanding
now, I can't even write without thinking about my poem
