Hey Now, PrincessHey now, Princess
Why do you always worry?
Rest on my shoulder
You don't need to hurry
Hey now, Baby
No need to cry
You want the truth
Not a lie
Hey now, Sweetheart
I know how it hurts
They want you to change
But you don't gotta convert
Hey now, Honey
Your bruises are showing
But when the going gets tough
The tough get going
Hey now, Princess
I'm cut up too
I've been here all this time
Fighting just for you.
Can't Love A LiarEvery day,
I spat out a lie.
And I can bet,
Someone's wishing for me to just die.
Do you think I want to do this?
What I've been doing all my life?
To attack them?
Back stab them with a knife?
I never wanted any of this.
I just didn't know what to say.
I don't want them to hurt,
Nor do I want them to walk away.
I guess I just want them to notice,
Is it more than that?
Maybe their affection?
But who could love a liar?
Am I right?
Who could love someone,
Not walking in the light?
I didn't want to hurt them,
My past, beautiful queens.
I just wanted to explain to them,
That the end justifies the means.
You're Not A PoetYou’re not a poet because of strung words
Together on row upon row again
Of blank verse or perhaps liberal rhyme.
‘Slam’ all you want, other poets wonder;
Your ignorance of couplets a blunder?
Yes! I speak harshly, but it’s no gross crime,
To point with honesty failed verse of thine.
No real poet discards upper case words;
Lets prose crawl on paper like listless worms.
You seek to free verse of those stern letters,
Sever away bleak capital fetters,
But it doesn’t sing of great speech sublime,
Rather, it sneaks of writing in spare time.
Wait! before you throw me in the icy Rhine;
It’s hard to put verse together in rhyme,
To make our dull words sound great all the time,
Hear them ring out loud, like a clear clock’s chime,
Heralding a poet’s summer prime.
Yet the sacred muses weep at your crime;
Your pentameter mangled thick like slime,
The subject not gilded in raiment fine;
Your bold ink font, crystal waters divine
Tastes bitter to the ton
Keep in Touch!
