Metaphor

 

I don’t write from the heart with love

No time to waste on foolish emotions

I bleed words from a poisoned mind

Direct, harsh & ultimately unkind

 

I don’t paint a pretty tranquil scene

No time to spend on serene landscapes

I drip words from my forked tongue

Hunting you down; nowhere to run

 

You can stuff your clever words & pretentious critique

Just what is it you’re searching so deep between the lines for?

Dissecting & finding hidden meanings that aren’t really there

Don’t you understand; this ain’t no fucking metaphor

 

You can keep your inflated ego & five syllable words

Just what is the point that you are trying so hard to score?

Evaluating & concluding from meanings that just aren’t there

Don’t you understand; this ain’t no fucking metaphor

 

I don’t create a master-piece of art

No time for beauty & grace

I burn words from a flame-filled soul

Scolding embers to consume you whole

 

I don’t compose a melody or tune

No time for a harmony of sound

I scream words from an exposed throat

Hear my condescending voice; every note

 

Don’t need your guidance, support or insight

Don’t want your feedback, assistance or advice

Never asked you to open your mouth but you couldn’t keep it in

But now I have your attention; you know what you can do with your opinion

The ink had hardly dried upon my page before your first blow had struck

But now I have your attention; will you kindly shut the fuck up

      orchi,

      I can spin different poetic plates when I have to.

      Something occured that required this one to be posted.

      I thought it was a loving piece; you should have seen the angry piece I was going to post!

      Thanks as always for dropping in & I know how you dislike this type of language so it is appreciated.

      Unsub.

        You marked it 18+ so it didn't start Fido barking! Well, the F word can be used where it fits in to poems, but if it's over-used it can just be laziness I think - not bothering to think of a different word.

            Unsub,

            Interestingly enough I was thinking of the word metaphor as it relates to your poem “Chess” , and I saw this posting!
            Holy moly, this is some write! Just read it once! It seems someone has really angered you! I shall come back to read it again and try to figure out what the heck is going on!
            Now I’m going back to “Chess”!

            As always...

              Laura,

              yes indeed Chess is a huge metaphor so I suppose it was only right I posted one called 'Metaphor'.

              It's just a 'get into the Xmas mood' kind of poem!

              There was a little trouble but you've missed it as i reported the villain & now their poem has been deleted probably by the owners. Good job; this place is starting to get back to normal & then trouble rears its ugly head again. I jumped on it very quickly.

              You go back to Chess.

              Thanks as always,

              Unsub.

                Alan,

                funnily enough this wasn't aimed at you. You can 5 syllable all the way home it doesn't bother me; it was somebody else that did!

                  I know you're a good guy Dan, that's why a bit of fun is so good. (All 1 syllable)

                  My first thought, Fuck Yeah! Second thought, I think I need to send you some Seroquel. I’ll get busted if I try to send you some weed!

                  • LAWLESS

                    You can tell me to “shut the fuck up” anytime, I’ve grown accustomed to it! Others have thinner skin.

                    • Unsub

                      Lawless,

                      your first thought was a good one!

                      I'm happy to tell you when to shut the fuck up but not this time!

                      You asked so politely and nicely at the last sentence, even though with f word.

                        m&m,

                        yes it was a tender moment of the poem! LOL!

                        OK. LOL.

                        I won't mention hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia then as it is more than 5 syslables.

                          Andy,

                          think that's about 9 syllables so you're quite safe!

                          Thanks my friend,

                          Hey there it's been a while but what a piece I need to learn this off, imagine the expression on someones face if you threw all this at them at once, read it a few times perfectly balanced rant right down your throat, would not like to be in the receiving end of this beauty, a pleasure as always bud,,,,, endastory

                          • Unsub

                            Zigs,

                            oh man! Where you been; you have been so missed on this site! Welcome back my poetic brother in arms!

                            I will try to remember this one & attempt to deliver it face to face to a particular person I have in mind!

                            LOL!

                            Jeez! Your forked tongue sure did get the attention.. That was dope! no apologies for it as it's art nonetheless.. Expression is Gods desire through man..

                            • Unsub

                              Alita,

                              sometimes my forked-tongue gets attention. It does upset the MPS members here who crave attention & choose not to comment as it might make my piece have a few more comments than theirs!! Personally i don't count replies & when i do i reply rather than make a comment by accident in order to boost number of comments. Take a look around MPS to see who these individual(s) are! Childish little games.

                              Truly appreciate your visit my friend,

                              Unsub.

                                I went through a process only to realise who I was in this game of chest. I don't judge you as I know exactly what you are perceiving. There's a shift happening as we speak and I realise that this is all a process.. A rebel till you realise who you are.. I love your work 🌹
