Truth Serum

I sip and I sip
As rhyme drips from my lips
I shoot from the hip
With inane useless quips

My pen is the arrow 
That points at the page
The ink is the poison
That's spreading my rage

It has no indifference
And writes with disdain
About how I feel
Of this world gone insane

But also it speaks
Of love and desire
And feelings within
That burn with a fire

To have and to hold
The things that amaze
The pleasure that comes
From one simple gaze

The sun in the morning
The moon in the night
The song of the sparrow
The Earthly delights

And sometimes it brings
To front something more
Like pain of a sadness
Or joy of amore

The ink of my pen
Is the blood of my script
Recording my life
From my birth to my crypt

    Hi Rockman -- You've got it all in here with this poisoned pen. I love the way you've summed it up. kathy

    This is a great descriptive write with some good rhyming. Just correct a couple of spelling errors: 10th line, "disdane" is correctly spelled "disdain". 15th line, "whithin" is spelled "within". Everything else looks great.

    Thanks for the keen eye. Sometimes I drink when I write so I appreciate the fellowship of others to help me stay on the right track.

    I loved reading this poem. "The ink of my pen / Is the blood of my script" - Such a powerful line that would resonate with any writer. Your title is also perfect and really caught my attention. Thanks for sharing!

    Thanks Heather. I try to be inventive with the title for just that reason. After all, it is the first line that you read. Rockman :-)
