I'm the Poem

by Maple Tree   Nov 1, 2018


Fighting urges of darkness
a fiery switch within my mind,
blades of regret mixed with
medicated potions I'll never drink.

Laughter fumigates the room
while true thoughts pollute
my mind with triggered words
and endless pain, sorrow.

I walk around like nothing
bothers me, and yet I think
about a cliff on top of a hill
somewhere.

I release this pain in stanzas
upon my arm, deep cuts of truth,
and you read each line like a road map
to my very soul.

I'm living because I choose
to let it all go within poetry,
thank you for reading,
I'm a living poem.
