inspired

i have a fatal flaw
i'm only inspired
when the darkness attempts to swallow me whole.

Can't write happy cliches,
got to write , full on shit kicking.
And so for me there is no I between

 I'm resigned to the dark side
that's where i live,
that is me

The reason I am still living
is ny ability to plough my feelings
on to the page

I'll use any means available,
Even if it's profanity
To keep the poem moving

I guess the moral is that i write what I  know
Or the poems won't flow
and i might as well let go

Comments

A comment on on man's inhumanity to man. Pain is relevant to us all. Just as some people write prose, some write in rhyme and some about the joy we find in life, there are those who don't respond to anything other than the pain they feel. You happen to be one of those. Maybe you could write about the good feelings you have in being able to express that pain? No [I] between? Did you mean: No [in] between? ~ Gee

Writing is an art that's not given to all.For me, you bear more human feelings when you write about others' hardships.This means that you can feel for them.A gift not given to all.

thanks for reading.
