My attempt at sappy poetry

from Joe H - Friday, August 09, 2002
accessed 1945 times

I figured, if you can't lick'm join'm!

do you see my pain?
I feel, I fell, I fight
Don't make me scream and
Tell the world what I want

I know my heart
can speak volumes full
of lust, love, lame poetry
You just don't want me to express myself
Cause I'm so appropriately complex
Or did you think I was too blonde to know
what appropriate meant?

And if I hammer at my keyboard
Break pencils and the pen's ink covers my fingers
know that I don't do this for you
This is my own personal pain

Cause I'm a human goddammit!
don't tell me not to feel
Don't tell me not to eat
Don't tell me I have to be a size 5
don't tell me I have big feet
or I'll punish you with rhymes that nonsensically repeat

this is by me, for me, of me
and maybe, just barely,
to you

Sorry, I'm not alf or mercy (well, I guess I'm not really sorry I'm not alf), but I like your line "or did you think I was too blonde to know what appropriate meant." Happens all the time.(reply to this comment

Good Stuff Joe.

One question... Size 5?? I think you may be shopping at the wrong section of the department store.
