"Cursed" by Eric Wayne Flynn

"Cursed"

Nag nag nag, you needy whore

Nag nag nag, always needing more

Ink from out of my pen

My ego asks, "Where the hell have you been?"

I was beginning to think...then I thought... "Who gives a fuck?"

Let your brain back off of the leash, let it run a muck

Let it spew toxic goo, toxic waste

Stir up the pot, see if they like the taste

Of the bitter fruit that hangs, dangling from my tree

Going out on a limb, out on a limb is me

On a ledge, at the edge, saying "Why?"

I rather be anything than a poet

I rather be anything than a poet

I rather be anything than a poet

So, be something else, just be

I can't run away from the challenge, I can't run away from me

I'm trapped, I'm tapped, I'm a leaky faucet

You can try to turn me off, you can try to turn me on

But ya see I'm broken

A weak, soft, fancy man with his fancy words

With no where to turn, but to a blank page

Filling it up with words, a prisoner of the paper cage

A full time job

To exercise the demon

To do "it"

To sit down

To take time

To write for an audience that doesn't exist

To take a swing for the fences and no one sees you miss

And on the flip, no one sees my home run trot

An empty stadium, yet I give her everything I've got

For it is I who am cursed

For it is I, married to the pen

For it is I who am cursed

She, wonders where I've been
