Poetry, To Me

Never failing to destroy    
Beautiful things and opportunities,  
With these tactics I employ,  
I've never fit into communities. †  
††  
I was always a little eccentric, †  
A wee bit different from the rest, †  
Maybe even slightly egocentric; †  
I could never pass the test. †  
† †
I'm not a social butterfly, † †
In fact, I struggle with relationships; †  
Sometimes I even wonder why...†  
Why bother with the pain of it? †
† †
I just can't seem to keep a friend, † †
Always failing every expectation; †  
So I pour my passions into poetry, †  
To help me with my situation. †  
† †
I write to help you understand †  
Why I have these bitter blues. †  
Or what it's like to walk a mile †  
Inside these withered shoes. †  
† †
I write to send a loving letter, †  
Or an urgent message to the Earth; †  
I write to boost my confidence, †  
To remind me of my worth. †  
† †
I also write to take a vacation †  
From the frustrations of my life. †  
To give me a sense of placation †  
An escape from all the strife. †  
† †
I exercise my imagination, †  
To create an immovable inner peace; †  
There lies a seed of poetic liberation †  
In each and every piece. †  
† †
Words lined with gold, in bold, †  
From your fragile hearts, you bear. †  
So many different worlds to behold, †  
Behold! So many stories you've shared! †  
† †
Through poetic worlds, I venture, †  
Exploring every avenue; †  
Now, it's time for an adventure; †  
But... vicariously through you!
