Pit and Pendulum

Forgive if I borrow, write and craft some sorrow
Beg and steal, I give you this now and tomorrow
Pen me under stars, pit me against the best
I'll write you a sonnet, put your heart to the test

Cause darlin I gotta know what it feels like
To taste glory, bring heaven from hell's pike
I need to pen a haiku and be through 
Oh you thought that I meant with you? 

Hell, darlin, I am seeking fame and fortune
I'll pull down stars and ink a supernova
This year I no longer stand by till it's over
Pits and Pendulum's buried under sandy dune

Desert? I will cross it then, a thousand times
Water to quench my thirst from otiose rhymes
But yet, I'll pen my name in the stars for it
Bleed heart and soul for it
But you'll find me... at the edge of a razor.

    Hi Tim, Surely fame and fortune are elusive; usually happens after we are dead and someone else collects the royalties! May your journey be filled with wonderful poems like this! Love, Lizzie

    A very interesting way of writing about writing itself, and I love the images of sharpness, the pendulum and the edge of a razor!!
