My Only Entry

I’ve had writer’s block for a while now
Unable to get the words out and down on paper.

Robert Frost wrote a poem about it and called it “Monkey Poo Fights”
Well I’m doing the same but naming it “Gorilla Shit Wars”

Because this right here, is way bigger then monkey poo.

Thoughts of love, hate, devotion and overcoming the impossible collide in my mind
Bringing with them emotions and feelings that crash and splatter all over the place.

Thoughts that should be expressed through the tip of my pen and scribbled out on paper are instead being spat out off a sword like tongue with unknown venom.

Affected are my dearest loved ones, which leaves me with a massive mound of shit to clean up. 

A few days back, when I thought the Gorillas were asleep, I tried to write a poem titled “Do you see me?”You know the kind… A deep, look within your soul and be righteous type poem.

But after only three lines
I was hit dead in my face with a massive amount of shit labeled doubt.

I realized just then, I could not ask others to see me
When in reality I was having trouble seeing myself.

So instead of writing that poem
I’ve written this one

And labeled it...
“My Only Entry”
