for my demons (inspired by “vices” by Zenisith)

it’s strange how
i never danced-
 
two left feet
always led me
 
offstage.  
 
but behind the scenes
i danced just fine,
in your embrace.  
 
lighter than feather,
you filled me with  
your smokey exhale
 
and i lived in your breath.

If you got an issue with curse words in poems…

Maybe you just old.

You want to white wash my language?
Well, If I might be so bold…

Fuck you! Shit shit shit shit and a bitch for good form

I been talking like this since the day I was born.

Let’s get real here:
How many you old white poets
Do this shit to get laid?
Difference between you and me?
My shit works…

Whatchu gonna do? Use your old man, dirty prose to woo some young broad? Maybe see if you can massage her back? You gonna bring over some fine red vintage and lecture her about your Wegmans bought cheeses?

Don’t get holier than thou with me, cuz. Your game just as transparent as any other bloke, caught window shopping in the red light district.

So here’s what’s what. Let’s have us a haiku off. Imma start:

Miss me on the street
Or I will lay your ass out
And write about it

Hi Wired; thanks for asking this question.

I would like to see you to find your muse in someone else's writing here at DUP and write a response poem to their poem. So, you are not necessarily writing about the poet, but I don't see why you can't if that is your inspiration. You can write about the topic that the poem is about, or the style that the poem is in, or continuing the poem, or something in that poem that prompted a poem from you, or all and any of the above. I don't want to tell you what your inspiration has to be, except that it has to come from another poem here on DUP. I hope this helps, but PLEASE ask more questions if you need to.

I don't know if you went through the entries so far, but they are all on point in the requirements, delivery, and respect to the original poem/ poet when indicating so.

Looking forward to reading your entry!

kindly,
ursa

Wired6, once it directs you to your poems, it is essentially asking which one of your poems you would like to enter into the competition. This happened to me the first time and I was confused!
What it wants for you to do is submit a poem as you normally do. Then, when you have your poem submitted, you can ALSO enter it into the competition.  :) I don't know any other way to do this.

I hope this helps! If not, please, again, do not hesitate to ask questions.

Enraptured--- Free Love For All.

To Love yourself and others,
Transparency and vulnerability calls.
Just enough 2 get through life,
Just enough 2 weather the blows.
We keep our Love tightly enshrouded,
By;if's,do's,and dont's.
Connecting every now and again,
With our multidimensional souls.
2 Love,is 2 suffer unpredictable falls.
"Get up,continue,no-one will ever know."
Embrace the Love you are going 2.
Today is your spiritual call.
2 Love,is a commonality,indicative 2 all.
Yet very rare and endangered,
We still chase it 2 further fall.
At the moment,Love is still falling.
It challenges all we know.
About this thing we Love 2 Love.
This Love is free for all.
