Ramblings Of A Dead Poet Revived

I’m your dream that drama queen you wanna be because you’re too damn scared on your own
so you talk about me –
My life shot and framed at every angle, a show and tell story of gory glory
A fit of reality TV evening drama
Me, an item to be discussed while you pine away
dismay pitted against your boring display of ridicule and scorn
a fine young thing wasted by the sideline of fate
a doorstep away
from where I stand
another miserable life invites me in
inciting an indictment in flight with a slight itch on the right side
another spiteful blight, pitiful, truly a fight to recite in the red light district of my mind
be polite do a rewrite be an anchor of light at first sight, sit tight
stay upright, only a bit contrite that my
knight in shining armor is all in my head
I have a legal right so join me in breaking bread maybe
Tempt you to try a
glass of organic Oregon Chardonnay instead
my life can’t be that exciting that you spend your time wondering when I do what I do and how I do it why do you care about my theatre life on the big screen
my life's a Sartre amphithreatre
play and I am the spectre at the center of the fuss
I reminisce I exist
the bliss a swiss- chocolate kiss amiss to a soul kiss
the calypso discussion
I disinvite you to an airtight conclusion


  1. Wow! This is definitely a poem to be read out loud. I loved all the assonance, rhyme, and flow of how the words sounded within the poem. My favorite lines to say aloud is "another spiteful blight, pitiful, truly a fight to recite in the red light" and "the bliss a swiss- chocolate kiss amiss to a soul kiss." This is truly amazing work! How long did it take you to mesh all these words together? Was it premature thinking or a spontaneous flow? I always find poetry hard to get down on paper because I think too much about it. Have any tips?

    I just started writing myself after about a year break and this poem is inspiring. Keep up the wonderful culture you create with your blog. :D
