i bend words to my will
i use them to fill

the spots in my heart i can't express
i use words to confess

my love, my hate, 
my sins of late

i cannot speak the words i write
the feeling in my stomach i'd have to fight

and since the feeling always wins
I've never said out loud my sins

ive written them down a million times
and i always write them down in rhymes

like i'm doing right now
and so im here to make a vow

to keep no secrets from anyone
now i am almost done

but i have but one thing to say
i hope this poem brightened your day

    This is one of my latest poems, I wanted to write a poem and I couldn't think of a topic so I wrote about all the words I've already used to make poems, wrote this.
