My fingers bleed words
that my lips cannot say.
When they try to trickle out,
I scowl and turn away.
It may not be contagious,
but it is a disease.
Holding myself deep inside,
it's getting hard to breathe.
Lies come so easy,
to cover up the truth.
It’s like my second nature,
grown from my very youth.
It’s deeper than conviction,
more earnest than a thought.
It’s my way
It’s my life
It is my disease.
Just venting a little--this is something I stuggle with literally every day. Tell me what you think.
Speaks to my soul.
Absolutely amazing poem. I love it. It has a great rhythm and I like your word choice.
great rhythm when read outloud
Beautiful, I absolutely love this. It's sad that you're going through this, and I understand where you're coming from. I do appreciate though, that you have shared yor emotions so beautifully, without a cry of self-pity. Remarkable work!
you just described my thoughts exactly, you're really talented
i love dis
i love dis
This practically describes me right now, great work, I like it.
It sounds like writers block. But yet again, there is a disease which no one acknowledges, and that is overcoming the fear to write what we feel, and it seems you can overcome that. You are a very talented person
This describes something I've struggled with for years; thank you for putting it into words. I hope we both heal someday.
It's very spiritual poem n i like the way u express it. Very deep. I like
A very deep message. I can definitely feel your emotion throughout this poem. Great work.
Very interesting. It seems to describe the urge to write- if that is it, then very accurate. On the plus side, this is how one becomes a good writer.
Your imagery is very good, especially in the first verse, and so is your rhythm. I am not so sure about the slant rhyme between disease and breath
Thanks so much for the comment! I just noticed I left the "e" off of "breathe" in that line. Does that help with the rhyme at all?
no, its just that 'disease' and 'breath' don't completely rhyme. When they only kind of rhyme, it is called a 'slant rhyme.' Usually if you are going to use it you use it continuously, having only one seems odd.
Of course, it is your work, so if you disagree, keep it. It still liked it anyway
nice but it's not good to lie it's like your lying to yourself sooner or later your start to belive it yourself
Wow, this is a very beautiful poem. In fact, out of all I can recall, this is my favorite. The most true to life. As a writer myself, I know and applaud the effort it must have taken to write this. Each time a writer makes a piece, he breaks off a piece of his heart for his readers to see. From this, I can tell that you must be a truly caring, empathetic and extremely talented person. Thank you for sharing this piece of you with us.
I can definitely relate...good write!
It's beautiful ;u;
Great poem! I hope you're okay!
I'm fine! It's something I'm really used to by now, so it doesn't bother me a lot. Thanks for reading.
your righting is lovely
strong connection threw emotion, nice work
I love this. As a writer and an artist I can totally relate to this awesome poem.
Wow, this really powerful! Nice job with the rhyming, too!
I almost thought I was reading about myself for a minuete there. Great poetry
I think I just found my new favorite poem.
This is very good
