What exactly is a poet?
Is it someone who takes god’s words
And puts them to paper?
Someone who isn’t plagued by words
But gifted by them?
So when you say
I am a poet
But am I really?
I feel more plagued by words
Destined to get them out of my body
By spilling ink on paper
Or by speaking poison words
It’s like I can’t be bothered with emotion
And it’s can’t be bothered with me
