The Beautiful poet killed Me
mhdashraf

I write in the shadows,
 1
King of a world I'll never own,
 2
Bruised arm shatters tender
 3
keyboard as words are infused
 4
to ease the pain.
 5
 
 
We are one of I,
 6
A selected few; the gift
 7
of gab our secret weapon,
 8
Failing us for years against
 9
the dreaded fist and wedgy
 10
we finally come to collect
 11
our dues.
 12
 
 
We are not a pretty group,
 13
Some pre-formed or made
 14
so by active thoughts of
 15
self loathing creativity,
 16
The pretty run by
 17
enjoying life-in real time
 18
as we create universes
 19
on our time-
 20
alone.
 21
 
 
Resurrect simple emotions
 22
and experiences
 23
as complex interactions
 24
of song-ed dance as letters
 25
stage my thoughts for
 26
those willing to read
 27
for two.
 28
 
 
Deformed in figure
 29
as they are fractured
 30
in mind,
 31
Self-comfort our way of
 32
life as dread breathes
 33
our living,
 34
Our greatest fear the
 35
inevitable end,
 36
The birth
 37
of a beautiful poet.
