    poets don't rhime
    love is a mirage in poets' poetry from the hate they experience in their present relationship
    wanting, needing feeding themselves desire from an empty spoon thinking "soon i won't starve"

    poets don't rhime
    joy is a prospect to poets while they write their pain with bloodink
    and their pens are crying crying crying
    living yet dying trying to find stable ground within
    they find life in the pen.

    poets don't rhime
    j'hiah's garden has wheats and tares
    $$RICH's$$ flight often has flares
    Hunter's vagina chronicles are as enigmatic as Rykah's ramblins yet clear as day
    Heartbeat saw tall grass in dnommo's meadow
    i saw dark Bishop in the lighthouse?

    poets don't rhime we just flow
    haiku
    prose
    drama this poetess is a man's dream wife yet another man's baby mama
    she doesn't rhime she just flows for she knows her story
    a queen throughout her pages
    free in her many cages

    poet(essess) flow we don't rhime

    nfinite, because of time

    Now J'hiah

    Out of all your many wonderful works, this poem (by far) shook my juglar with each line. The honesty is "in yo face" straight up and no poet, reading this...can deny this. Each line speaks what no poet will say. These lines are our silent heart beat and no one knew our lines...until now. This poem exposes the heart of a poet...bringing us face to face with ourself. May we love what we see.

    Thanks J'hiah
