I am currently courting creativity

and frankly its repelling me at every turn

you would think time after time

some sort of of valued lesson from this

I would soon learn

like not to further force my imposing will

upon rhyme's might

nor take any abject pleasures in self misery's

ill fated plight

so I ask of thee spare me anything Lord but

the blood full words scratched out by my

nearly objective pen

harness in me not my capabilities so much

so as the imagination that motivates me from
