Random Poem:

keyboard sacrifice

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