poetry is clickbait

A amazing poem shared.

writings on my tongue

And since Hazlitt said, “Poetry is the universal language.”

I will learn to speak to you.

If poets were like their poetry

and singers like their songs,

then I would have loved you.

But we are all just honest liars.

So we’ll stick to writing hidden messages in our stories

and rhyme words carrying the emotion weighing us down inside

hoping that someone somewhere will decipher it and bring us comfort.

“Poetry is the universal language.”

Now I’m speaking, singing with no audience and all this waiting,

it’s beginning to feel like I’m speaking in tongues.
