i like to feed things in
through my mind and then pull them
right out of my chest when they're
done,
put it on paper and call it
a poem, feed it
back into the brain
and repeat, but
anxiety says just
let this stuff go -
cough up those words
that you've got in your
chest and dust off the
shelf in your lungs, feel
them one last time if you want
but please, send them away in
their poems, and quick
i'm real
sorry but
i'm just not
done with them
yet

there's no
poetry drip
i can rip
from the back
of my hand
and my neck,
can't
discharge myself
from this one

(chew it up, spit it out)

You pull it out of your chest...that's probably why your poetry has so much heart. The heart center is where the love and hurt gets sorted out. This is where the pure passion resides... the war inside us between suffering and love. :)

I don't notice the gaping hole in my chest until
it's too late
bleeding words for everyone to see
put pressure on the wound but
it won't stop
I will die in this agony of
overexposure
secret thoughts pump out of me
with every beat of my Judas heart

Yes, there's no drip that we can pull out to stop writing. Poetry is your drug, stories are mine.

If you didn't feel this way, we wouldn't be gifted with so much of your beautiful, beautiful poetry. :heart:

In school they tell you
Your mind will try to black out traumatic memories
But my pen tells me I need to rethink
Re analyze
redo
re experience
replace the guilt in my heart with three words
"I said no"

i like to feed things in
through my mind and then pull them
right out of my chest when they're
done,
But sometimes
it leaves other people cold
letting ice seep through the cracks of their feeble hearts
and i scar myself
with all the things I've said
put it on paper and call it
a poem, feed it
back into the brain
and repeat.

I just... write. Then I go back to change a few words and submit it. And that is my creative process.
