Poem for Poem

Listen to poem:
Poem for poem, rhyme for rhyme
I'll continue to write, until it's time
Time being death, which I never see close to me
Sometimes I find placement in places I don't want to be
Like in your conversations, did we forget my positivity?
Like how I helped them at their worst, after they've begged me constantly
I'm running out of options as well as doing favors
Handouts become expected from those I consider takers
Rekindling former loves can become very likely
I could tag one in with Nick and make a special trip to Raleigh
My time is valued more, and I choose how I spend it
By now they've realized my love has no limit
Part 2 was about you know who, I hope she liked it
You never know what you like at first, until you try it
Old feelings, new women, mismatching
Old friends, new rivals, backstabbing
I feel sharper than I did at 8:00pm
Thinking back to the issue, it was best ignoring that DM
All problems became trivial once I showed them what Happiness is
Expression of a man, loving mothers and their kids
Yet, it's so easy for words to become twisted
The bullet misses the target, then the meaning becomes misted
Count on being forgiven for things I didn't do
Addressed it in full, all love from me to you

Poem for poem, rhyme for rhyme
I hope through the hard times, I remain on your mind
We're not perfect nor are we saints
Not even as Xavier, shall I discard restraint
I've fulfilled my Ideas of Gold
Even if the expression was Too Much
These are thoughts that I hold
Never too sensitive to touch

Ohhhh Xavier, I LOVE the audio, the music fits perfectly. I can see you on stage, performing it. Have you ever done that? I already loved your poem, but this recording made it even more alive! Fave and a 7 for you.

Thank you very much Darren! I've never performed live on stage. That could possibly be the next step for me! I currently live a very busy lifestyle with few moments to myself for writing, but when I craft my work, I think about how deep I'm able to connect with my readers. Again, I thank you for your support and more than happy you liked the audio! :)
