The Burden Of Myself


I can only offer you a poets passion.
In the most dignified fashion.
Creative torment and lack of understanding from anyone.
Are two frequent attributes of mine.
No one can console me.
I am the burden of myself.
And the stranger of everybody else.

    The argument of a million, you present here. All poets are understood, at least for a brief moment, when their works are read. This is one of your best, your skill improves each day, my friend. (Report) Reply
