    off the top of my head....


    I need a poem like I need a cup of coffee
    sitting here trying to write a lyric a rhyme
    just one stanza like I'm thirsty
    trying not to stress...

    It's driving me crazy starting to shake
    like a junkie needing something
    just
    a thought of a sonnet

    Lord give me a free verse
    something they can hear me
    so they can cheer me lol
    let me blaze just once or twice
    lost my style
    give anything to blaze wild
    its my security blanket
    to release...........

    looking above

    was it all for nothing


    my pen to
    my hand to
    extend
    to the paper
    writing a flow

    Lost inside a mind that can't release

    down on my knees begging please


    For them not paying attention
    did I forget to mention
    this is my mind pension
    its my extension
    to release and relax

    Hope God's not finish with me yet

    A blkangel thang

    ahhh...but writing is about writing, that's what writers do. we write, right!

    we take a word, like, verse

    not allowing our mind to get worse,
    we stumble upon a free verse
    just to see if people get terse (with it)
    don't worry...it's legit
    then we write about the poetry we want to write
    a verse...a flow...don't worry 'bout getting it right
    we start with one word...then another
    can even talk about our sisters and brothers

    or...a lover

    it doesn't matter the topic we choose
    it's just a verse...there's nothing to lose
    so, we relax and let the river flow
    riding the waves as we go...and...go

    i know...

    it's not the best poem ever written
    but, a poem is a poem, if you're not smitten
    by a specific type of poetry
    like some iambic pentameter type flowetry
    i know it be...like...evenly keyed
    but we just wanted to be free

    you know, like, free verse.

    just a verse

    Hey Baller thanks....

    throwing verbs and nouns together
    and adding adjectives I love the sound
    they make together

    when it comes to poetry
    its not about black and white
    not even blue or yellow
    its that mental ride

    aww here we go
    its the twist the blist
    that hot blaze
    the craze you can enlighten
    with just a little umm
    word play
    in ones mind
    ya feel me

    feed the lonely dreams
    give the sad a little joy
    hey make the happy happier
    and just go on down the line
    its called word play

    twist da wind your way
    shift da sun
    and reline da moon
    I think ya help me out
    a liitle

    my pen to
    my hand to
    extend
    to the paper
    writing a flow

    and that's the way it goes
    we flow...and flow...and
    ohhh
    the ink be spilling
    the body be chilling
    and you be thrilling to the twists and turns
    as our mentals yearn
    the tug and pull of the giddi-up flow

    you know.

    (you're more than welcome. :icon6:)
