    Most poems are about love
    He loves me, he loves me not
    She loves me, she loves me not
    Not there’s anything wrong with it,
    But what happened to the ones on trials and tribulations,
    Dreams of peace and revelations
    Happiness of life, sex and its expectations

    With some that are equivalent 2 one being sad,
    Leaving you emotionally and physically dead
    Daring one to repeat what they said
    What happened to those?
    To those invincible poets
    I wouldn’t dare speak against ‘em
    But love to be around ‘em type of poets
    The ones that you just have to hear over and over again
    Until you can mentally feel what they said

    Do you feel me, or do you just hear me?

    ‘Cause there are plenty of times
    I hear the same old rhymes
    Using the same old lines
    Day after day,
    Hour after hour,
    Minute after minute
    And second after second
    [email protected] it gets irritating!

    I want to hear a poem that’ll strike and make you bleed
    That’ll give you a taste of life
    Having you to think twice
    Now that’s the type of poet I LIKE!
    The ones that will take you down a road of dreams
    And you KNOW that they’ll never be seen
    Yet, when it’s over you begin to believe in their words and its truth
    Now that’s a POEM and that’s what a POET is suppose to do!

    Do you feel me, or are you just listening?

    Because I don’t know about you, but I miss those types of words
    Those types of people
    I miss those …those, those
    Blood sheddin’, heart strikin’, fast talkin’, ear hustlin’
    Self-centered, love hungry, life starvin’
    I hate myself, just can’t stand myself!
    Those emotional
    Thankful, loveable poets

    I miss those, "I’m gonna stay up to write this
    Even if nobody else will read it
    Just as long as I love it," poets
    I miss those lyrical poets,
    Powerful tongue twisting poets
    Using words one would never try to
    But gives respect to the ones who do, poets

    I miss those spiritual poets
    "Thank God for giving us life
    Because without him we wouldn’t be here," poets
    I miss those sexual poets
    "Ohh baby your love is like…
    Touch me here ‘cause u do it right," poets
    "I can’t sleep or eat without you
    All because I need you," poets
    The ones where "I just gotta touch myself
    ‘Cause I just can’t help myself"
    Type of poets

    I miss those
    "F**k you, and f**k what you said!"
    Angry; mean poets
    "I love this ****, even if nobody else wants it
    I’ll read my **** and I can give a [email protected] if you listen!"
    Type of poets

    I miss those meaningful poets
    The ones that’ll slap you in the face
    Leaving you amazed
    ‘Cause you never knew their words had the power to hurt you and at the same time, inspire you this way
    I miss those poems of a struggle
    Life’s struggle
    The, “I’m gonna stand tall without any help from ‘em” poets

    I miss poetry
    I miss poets
    The way they spit it
    Yes, I miss it

    Do u feel me, or am I just talking to myself?
