Just poetry

01 Apr

Sometimes

my poetry

is just poetry.

It is not

a song

from my soul.

It is not

a yearning

cry for help.

It is not

the burning

of desire.

It is not

a statement

of intent.

It is not

secretly

about you.

It is not

how I feel

right now.

Sometimes

my poetry

is just poetry.

A jumble

of words

I strung

untidily

together.
