Slightly Off KeySlightly Off Key
The rhythm that I move to, is slightly off beat.
The pace of my life, is completely unique.
But I truly believe, that you're the harmony,
To my slightly, off key melody.
I want you to play a bigger roll, turn the volume up a bit.
Your voice is lost in crashing cymbals, & the guitar riff. (Chorus)
So I ask you to let it all out, sing for the rafters.
Just think about the here and now, not the before and after.
You fill in the gaps, you back me up.
You are the missing track, the one I trust
I want so badly, to hit unmute.
To mix & meld my life with you.
You're Not A PoetYou’re not a poet because of strung words
Together on row upon row again
Of blank verse or perhaps liberal rhyme.
‘Slam’ all you want, other poets wonder;
Your ignorance of couplets a blunder?
Yes! I speak harshly, but it’s no gross crime,
To point with honesty failed verse of thine.
No real poet discards upper case words;
Lets prose crawl on paper like listless worms.
You seek to free verse of those stern letters,
Sever away bleak capital fetters,
But it doesn’t sing of great speech sublime,
Rather, it sneaks of writing in spare time.
Wait! before you throw me in the icy Rhine;
It’s hard to put verse together in rhyme,
To make our dull words sound great all the time,
Hear them ring out loud, like a clear clock’s chime,
Heralding a poet’s summer prime.
Yet the sacred muses weep at your crime;
Your pentameter mangled thick like slime,
The subject not gilded in raiment fine;
Your bold ink font, crystal waters divine
Tastes bitter to the ton
Keep in Touch!
