THE BITTER POET (standard:poetry, 140 words)
Author: eddiesoloAdded: Apr 27 2004Views/Reads: 1614/0Story vote: 0.00 (0 votes)
A piece from a man who has spent too long writing poems. Ironically when he realises that he has spent far too much time doing poetry, his despair is written in poetry.
 



THE BITTER POET 

Stars. Again. My. Companions. Are. 

Laid. On. One's. Back. I. Wonder. How. Far. 

Vision. Blurs. As. The. Liquor. Courses. My. Veins. 

Bloated. On. Drink. Like. A. Dark. Cloud. Full. Of. Rain. 

Poetry. Is. Freedom. To. Express. What. You. Feel. 

Releasing. Your. Soul. For. Others. To. Steal. 

No. Riches. Or. Glory. For. A. Man. Like. Me. 

Just. Booze. Red. Eyes. And. Staggering. For. A. Pee. 

Consuming. My. Time. To. Write. This. And. That. 

Great. Pieces. I. Thought. Giving. Myself. A. Pat. 

It. Started. Out. Just. Scribbling. For. Fun. 

Pages. Of. Nonsense. Is. That. All. What. I. Have. Done? 

So. Lying. Sprawled. Out. In. This. Park. 

I. Shall. End. This. Poem. With. One. Astounding. Mark. 

A. Full-stop. You. See. Doesn't. Have. To. Be. Used. 

But. In. This. Case. Like. Me. It. Has. Been. Thoroughly. Abused.
