THE POET WHO LIES

February 6, 2021

FREE WRITING

2
i call myself a poet but it's all a guise;
my biggest secret is that i cannot write

i wind and strangle cream pages with lies
with metaphors and symbolism that
mystifies

want to know another confession?
i don't know what's inside-

my rotting brain and heart
scarcely even cry.

they decay with silence
broken cages harbouring a 
life

they depart with violence
which surprises me
every time.

I TRIED TO WRITE
I DID
I DID

BUT ALL THAT CAME OUT
WERE LIES.
