Writer Rant

Vintage Words


My heart is on fire with love and sex;

well this week, next week I'll be alone

again. The flames will all turn cold

with icicles, my heart will bleed in pain

and you will be kissing other rainbows.


Do it my way because I am wise

and have messed it up enough to know

the best route to the finest of goals.

Of course this is subject to change

next year when I have more experience.


Take my hand and walk with me

among the stars is the biggest lie

of all. We would starve, suffocate,

and explode due to no air pressure

which is why we may not leave

earth without a suit and a ship.


Lies are so interesting to humans

like the news, and what the teacher

told you all those years ago. Making

the view seem brighter and cleaner

when it is mostly dull toil and dirt

under the nails. Lie to me poet. Make

me feel as fake as possible. Use

elements of style to hide what is,

and paint the world in color instead

of black and blue.
