This is a Bad Poem

March 25, 2019



I tried writing a poem once
When I was happy
It was the worst poem I had ever written

I learned
My creativity is sparked by my pain
The fire

That ignites my brain and heart
That controls my emotions
Apparently holds my creativity as well
And my desires to create
Is the fire the reason I can never go to sleep?
That I stay up all hours of the night
Just thinking
About the fire
And about the pain
It holds oh so tightly onto  
That fire must be put out
I just dont know how
How do you tarnish a fake fire
A fake fire you created
To try and figure out how to explain
Your pain
To yourself
And you are not doing a good job
Because now youre stuck with more questions
Because a fire destroys
And yet its as if
Your mind and your heart are the flames
Holding everything near and dear to you
As Well as all of the heartache and pain
It burns you
It destroys
You can be built back from the ashes

But the fire wont rest
Until you can extinguish it

And crack a smile

Thats real

Unlike the shotty metaphor of a fire
