jeans & leather

By FadedBlues

how many of us sit in a lonely room

at a lonely computer

writing lonely  lonely poems

mine rebel at being confined

so i dress them in faded blues, motorcycle boots,

black t-shirts, distressed leather jackets,

don't forget the sunglasses

& they rush out the door

like runaways, to shatter the night

rattle the lethargy

make a noise that matters...

bind with others of your kind

* stain * the * sky * with * fireworks *

make little poem babies

agonize the world

     with lonely songs

    DMH might be thinking "antagonize" but then that would change the message too. This was superb and I know the feeling of having to get something out when it comes with an inspiration, much like this poem I'd guess, thanks FB.
