    when I write....
    words become cemented to the roof of my mind
    damming the rhyme river that I used to mine
    when I write....
    the words just seem scrambled
    never sunnyside up, never poached
    hell ain't even fried hard, just scrambled
    can't tell nothing bout the words
    can't tell yolks from whites
    when I write....
    words flow like tears
    uncontrolled,unwanted, uncatchable on paper
    on my face, on my tongue
    but never on...THE PAGE
    when I write....
    the words are full figured but promiscious
    flirtatious but faceless
    fleeting but forever unfaithful
    when I write....
    words rush to their ruin
    committing suicide
    and so to stop the killing
    I just.......DON'T WRITE
