What An Army Of Poems Couldn't Say
Updated: Jan 29, 2022
Metaphors about nature won’t work for this one
(They bore me anyways)
Nor will a rhyming scheme
I cannot do a haiku, no, not for this
There is no plan to be mysterious
and lead you astray,
just for a surprise twist.
And there will not be funny or clever punchlines at the end.
I will not hide what I want to say
behind short stories and characters.
No more representations
No more philosophy
No more complaining about the world
No more cleverness
There’s only so many ways to say the same thing,
and I’ve said it every which way,
except the right way.
So here it is,
everything I’ve been trying to express,
summed up in one sentence,
I miss you,
I am sorry.
it still isn’t enough.
