Give Me An Original Metaphor
Explanations of what I mean
When I ask for the new
Tend to...fall flat.
I understand there's only so many
Dictionaries ripped together
Dictions I can scavage through
Concepts that equate your thoughts.
But even then I still find
Melted hearts and emotional roller coasters
Haphazardly tossed into lines that should add up to better use.
And I think this game that I'm playing
Is maybe not
What everyone else is?
Tone of thought. Weaving a plot. Standing with opinion.
Juggling concepts into uncommon use, was a clown's gag I thought everyone was testing.
But this, what you're reading, the creation of poetry.
Is perhaps more acustom to a travelling circus.
Or a dirty carnival.
I'm only here because this is what gives me refreshment.
From Isolation. From Starvation. From Deprication.
I want new thoughts
Give me new metaphors.
