Solemnly Swear

Updated on June 23, 2013

I solemnly swear that when I write I am up to no good

Twists and twists in my mind end with a THUD

And it’s nice... to feel my demons are finally out

Spat like spirit drops drizzled all about

This thunderous stream of creative EXPLOSION

Writing is as much of an EXORCISM as it is a motion


Plugging at these keys till this feeling just feels RIGHT

And I can’t! I can’t do this without losing parts of my fingers

Chopping at my frazzled stumps.. thoughts of losing my hands is all that lingers

THEN what would I do to release this FIRE from my eyes?

Stepping cautiously around the pitfalls of doom and this DEEP darkness dive

Quakes of fear break the silence with a BLARE

What if I don’t write enough... I tell you I’m scared

These words have me gripped from my feet to my spine

Zapping my INNOCENCE - plucking grapes from my vines

How long has it been?... My God I’m losing time..

Sentences have me frozen in these honey-suckled rhymes

LINES and LINES are all I have to explain me and the grandfather clock CHIMES

Days I don’t succeed I feel my body taking a fine

To come up with FLUID to water my OBSESSION

Writing tales of heart break and pain like a sick twisted POSSESSION

I SOLEMNLY swear that I mean you no harm

But I have to keep writing before I lose my arms

It’s teeth are razor sharp and I know it’s hungry.. I FEEL it

Maybe I can save you before it comes for you instead

Because after my arms all that’s left is my he..................
