    I’d rather be a poet than complain,
    reconstructing all my pain
    into free-flowing winds of emotion,
    minds drip with insight,
    like windows with rain,

    I’d rather be a poet than a movie star,
    because I don’t need to act out possible lives,
    I’m too busy
    tediously expressing the ever-changing one I’m living,
    giving different interpretations,
    making constant alterations,
    hoping I want be pulled under by
    the waves of manipulation

    I’d rather be a poet in love
    than a lover who tries to write about it,
    only then could I attempt to describe
    the euphoric sensation
    when I glance in her eyes,
    curves and crevices explored
    like uncharted lands,
    lost cities of gold
    at the meeting of thighs,
    hands demanding their fill of pleasure,
    of substance,
    the earth shattering crescendo of moans and sighs

    I’d rather be a poet while dying
    than die and have nothing to say,
    I’d announce my final breath
    in a soul-stirring line,
    that’d be requoted by others
    until the end of time

    Awesome, excellent, beautiful, and any other word that I can't come up with right now to describe how I feel about this.

    Tarheel you are a poet, and you are so wonderful to read, and expressive yes, you do this for all of us. I very much love your words and feel your thoughts and emotions. Your love for your words shows in every line all the time.
