Plight of the Poet

Plight of the Poet
By: C. Hemphill

Pen to paper and out falls brain matter
Mop the page with your mind
Trying to find the right simile for your life
Talk about how daddy never loved you
And Mommy never cared
Psychoanalyze
Under the glow of a computer screen
Vomit words and sounds onto a canvas
Paint them into a masterpiece with your hands
Spill your soul like ink
Stain the page with your life
And with your heart realize
That you’re the only person that will understand it all
Anyway

    my writing usually comes from a very honest and vulnerable place.
