MYTHOLOGICAL CREATION

Folder: 
BATHROOM GRAFFITI

 

I am cast aside

by the mythological creation

of myself

 

an image created

in my own likeness

that I no longer have the strength

nor desire to maintain

 

I created the myth:

    The poet and have found

the deceit too bitter to swallow

 

Beauty like acid

sears the flesh

insulted by my mortality

& human blemishes

 

The scars on my mind

run deep as the bombs

drop on the fields;

desecrating the sacred soul

       of my poetry
