I want to write something that would make Nikki proud.
Something that would make Zora nod, or Maya gleam from the stars above.
I want to write something that would make Dorothy laugh
or would have made Sylvia stay the course for one more day…
Just one more day-
But I ain’t got shit good to say…
I am consumed and blue because all I could come up with to do
was write yet another shitty pile of poetic bullshit
that simply betrays my talent for a stupid sentiment
A disease I haven’t figured out how to cure yet
Me being in love with you…
