World Poetry Day!

Yay!

So today is World Poetry Day. So I have a littel offering for you. It’s first draft, it’s rough as hell, but it was the best I could do at short notice. So here you go…

Call Me Fool.

I look inside the box…

….some would call it my heart…

…and there’s a picture captured inside it…

…it’s a picture of you.

I listen to the words…

…some would call it my prayer…

…and there’s an echo repeating throughout…

…it’s an echo of you.

I feel the cold empty air…

…I would call it my soul…

…and there’s a something missing…

…its a something that’s you.

There’s a weakness inside me…

…a flaw…

…a failing…

This need to love–

–and be loved.

There’s a foolishness in my brain…

…a stupidity…

…an idiocy…

This need to help–

–and be helped.

How I would have loved to dance within the flame…

And take my chances with the sorrow and the shame.

How I just couldn’t resist…

Finding this something I thought didn’t exist.

Call me fool–

Call me weak–

My answer to you…

Call me your friend.
