The Camera Never Lies …

A photograph says
He who sends pays.
A photograph implies
He who attaches does not lie.
A photograph states this is me
And not some other he.
A photograph says all that you need to know is here,
You need not fear.

A photograph says
There are many ways
To skin a cat
And I will eat my hat
If the camera never lies.
“Whose eyes
Are those?”
“Only heaven knows”.

What is Poetry

A powerful cry from the heart by Jason. Kevin

I do not know what poetry is or even how to write it. How the lines are supposed to support one another, a house of cards is all I build. Crashing words make no sound at all as they fall to waiting ground. They simply fall forever and are forgotten. It makes me angry and upset as the lines I have written are quickly forgotten.

What is poetry? What is the image that you see, that is poetry to me. Rules from dead fingers mean nothing to me. They are merely suggestions. I break those rules as I break myself to find inspiration. I keep burning my words till I am used to the smell of smoke. Till the sting of syllables in my eyes makes me realize why I cry.

I cry for poetry. I cry for what I do not know.
