I am dripping
– with blood
– with tears
they are churned
and brewed deep
within me
I don’t tend to
the kettles –
I simply don’t
care enough to
bugs, insects, crawl inside
strike matches on their
crisp skeletons and
light the fire
bright dew drops begin the concoction
skin scales, leaves, grass
they boil down to a thick,
steaming liquid
it burns to be alive.
I secrete involuntary lies
they wait behind the skin,
begging to be released;
to roll down in sweet, hot beads while
the dogs are sitting to lap them up.

interesting imagery. also to 'sethmeyerslover1234': poetry is writen by the poet to release emotions in a creative and enigmatic format. to the reader; not all peoms will make sense but may take on a new meaning to the person who reads it. it isn't about getting it. it's about feeling the power in the poets emotion and the beauty in their words.

If you love something, set it free....If it comes back, it was meant to be...If it continues to fly...let it soar...And have faith that God has something better in store...

Usually when i read someone elses work i tend to get a little jealous because, lets face it im not that good of a writer. Your poetry it made me wish i had such great talent as you do. keep a hold of it, because it might slip away from you one day. Great great poem.

A picture is worth a thousand words, however it takes a real artist to turn words into pictures.

Have you heard about the new Lebron Iphone, you have to set it on vibrate because it doesn't have any rings

It took me a couple of tims to understand the metaphors, but once I did I loved it
