I Like Rhyming

I like rhyming…
It’s like mining for words when the timing is right,
I try finding the slang to hang on the lining,
I’m designing a story with a priming that’s tight.

Rhyming makes me feel good…
Like a boyhood dream I used to scheme and plot,
Filled with a theme deemed worthy of interest,
It’s like a keen stream of consciousness sought.

I love me some wordplay…
It’s the way I like to relax and ax and flay,
A reward I work toward on my keyboard,
I’m never bored with a sword ready to slay.

I enjoy a ton of pun in the long run…
It’s a fun way to keep myself entertained,
I sink my quill in the ink and think to drink it,
But then I spit it and hear it as unrestrained.

So if the verse made you smile while reading,
You’re feeding my soul because you understood,
Writing is exciting as if I’m shining this poem,
Because rhyming…makes me feel good.
