Stolen Poetry

By lupus tenebrae


Stolen kisses lack
the passion of their meanings,
and the promise of their hands.

Stolen poetry,
yields no voices, and instead,
chooses silence after all.

    This pings deep within me. To steal is to covet what you could have if you chose to work for it. Its almost flattering except that its heart crushing. Well said.

    People who will steal poetry and pass it off as their own, will steal anything. Their definition of "honor" is, whatever they can get away with, and "virtue" is for all the suckers. They are devoid of any soul, so used to lying, and therefore totally unable to create anything original of lasting beauty. But then that could just be me...
