This is What You've Missed
They say that writing poetry is
a way to express your feelings.
Well, then, this world must be pretty depressed
because every one I've read has sent me reeling.
cries of pain and black India ink splattered all over the screen
lost individuals who speak of life as if that's the only thing they've never seen.
And in my mind's eye I can picture clearly
rainbow-colored drops falling from above
because corruption is never black
only sweet and bitter love
And their tears wash over me in salty waves
and I see poetry for what it really is
It's when you tear out your emotions and tack them to paper.
to show the happy people what they've missed.
