Hello, everyone! I hope you enjoy my pieces published on this page! Most of what I write is inspired by real life events, along with people I have the pleasure of meeting. Please favourite, review, leave a comment or share any of my works if you like them because it may not seem like it but it means a great deal to me and will make my day tremendously.

The
 drop of a
pin
 on the ground
is
 jazz. the sound
of
 a voice, a 
noise,
 a sigh is 
jazz-
 but I am 
not,
 my cry is 
not
 jazz; it calls
for
 me, falls in
front
 of me but
I
 fall too hard-
too
 dark- too hard.
so
 blue, no jazz,
the
 cue is gone
a
 light with no
pulse-
 a drone is
all
 and falls- I 
hear
 a call but
there
 is no sound
on
 the ground, no 
pin-
 too dark, hard.

I
 think “what's the 
point when there is
no
 pin, no point" 
I
 am too dark;
too
 hard to fall,
to
 call, to feel
and
 I steal, stole
the
 souls of them
and
 my blues are 
cold-
 I have no 
hold
 like they do
there
 is ash from
my
 song- grey a
pile-
 I stay a 
while
 but the song 
is
 done- a glass 
can
 not be half
full,
 if it were 
not
 full ever at
all
I
 am done.

    Fantastic! I loved the rhythm and it gave the same energetic feeling that spoken word poetry gives me. A brilliant addition the the prompt. Great job!
