    Seldom do I see how the poetic piece of me controls that unseen domain in your mind
    I find it rare and interesting how deep my wounds are from my own words
    They gut me and spill my intestinal truth onto whoever’s eyes and ears dare to pay attention
    Even I’m afraid to listen
    The reality of the world daring to decapitate my words escalates my mentality to an unknown state
    Where even poetic gravity can’t keep me down.
    I’m terrified of the clamor of my verbalization and poetic sound
    Seldom do I contemplate the next phrase or line penned
    The versatility of emotions leads me to commit every poetic sin
    Again and again verbal fornication with everyone and everything
    I just can’t help it
    I control nothing when it comes to poetically speaking
    Leaving every pen leaking in culmination simply from the intensity of my verbalization
    That is not my intent, was never my intention
    I’m no innovator
    No majestic poetess inventing things
    I just pen
    Release..without relation or relaxation
    The sun beats on my thoughts rays and makes me rain poetic perspiration from each poor
    And I can’t lie I beg my self for more, disregarding the seriousness and realism of it all
    It hurts to hear the words in my head so I scribble until each nibble biting at my dome stares back at me
    And that ish is scary
    Because I realize that I kill and rebirth myself every time I live poetic
    Each line is my grave each stanza is my funeral
    And each completed piece is my poetic birth room.

    I loved this piece...

    digging these lines
    "I’m no innovator
    No majestic poetess inventing things
    I just pen"

    See I always say...
    "Ink aint thick enough to tell the stories of a soul,"
    yet we try...and we scribe...
    So keep it up let the ink flow...
