I have spoken all the words of my soul
diluted for ingestion as half truths and vague lies.
As the artist strips to educate the world mirror
I have exhibited my naked self, opening the facets
of my mind and the threads of dreams;
to be held and explored in the hands of strangers.
Alone my words exist for my own purpose,
here they define me as
I am God, having giving birth to my people
waiting for them to return the favour.

Born with a great line, in constant search of that
new wisdom to display in prose.
This is the burden that sought me out,
I have been chosen to voice my pain,
to ease my soul I speak agony for sanity.
My experiences are null and void,
only fully appreciated by myself.
Then when I write am I mocking you,
teasing with rhyme, awaiting your interpretation
praying that I am not asked for an explanation?
  
This is my parody. Perhaps that was spoken
with too much clarity. I have lashed against
everything to expel the demons of my adolescence.
Life has drained my fight and tamed my voice
from a passionate shout to an elegant sigh.
Once I waged war today I only want to dream.
Hibernation is my new obsession.
I have spoken all of my privacy openly
allowed the world to see me empty,
Isolation of a lover now strangles me.
Wounded and alone I refuse to let you see.
I deny everything said outside of this parody,
Take your poetic piece of me and leave.

Excellent writing, Brian. I think the best poetry is born of reality.

wow, you went deep for this one...
excellent writing here Brian,
its apparent how much thought went into this.
and it definately has that "edge" *smile*
take care, jm

 It's amazing
How you make your face just like a wall
How you take your heart and turn it off
How I turn my head and you lose it all ...
And it's unnerving
How one move just puts me by myself
There you go just trusting someone else
Now I know I put us both through hell ...
I'm not sayin
That there was nothing wrong
I just didn't think you'd ever get tired of me
And I'm not sayin
We ever had the right to hold on
I just didn't wanna let you get away from me.
