Random Poem:

keyboard sacrifice
vida

I once ran into a poem,
 1
after analyzation i picked it up
 2
smelled it, that old scent of fear
 3
dripped out from its vocabulary,
 4
I wish I could of said something
 5
breathed courage into it, hope...
 6
but who am I,
 7
it just wouldn't change it's tune
 8
deep inside that hollow phrase writer
 9
a keyboard types it's last words
 10
as if they could change fate,
 11
something brilliant and new
 12
but it only knew' old cliques and love
 13
oil and water,
 14
and that board in the hearts of man writes their last words;
 15
every man's key lies in his heart
 16
and every man's heart lies in his poem.
