Poet Not

i can write a line   or two
and rhyme it   like some poets do

i can even
 think of something       sweet 
to share     with      pen     and ink
and   i have time   to dare

but poets     true poets
"must   have   a   darkness
in their hearts"
or so     that is
I have been told

and   who   writes these rules
“create a separate stanza”
“I don’t like the rhyme”
“this is sweet       but
    why did     you make
 it look       so neat”
“you use     too    many    capitals
    there’s     almost       one
 in every line”

and when i sign my books
     I   use     three
R-A-Y              every time

And    as for darkness
I am not     vader
when    I scratched    this rant
the    w h o l e   room

    I can relate to this Ray especially the 'rules' stanza - I seem to fall foul of many rules in my writing lol:-) Hugs Jan xx
