A literacy theft of a line or phrase
the facade, simulacrum of a writer
creating a mirror image, deception . . .
The forgery of blood written heart and soul
penning a likeness of me is plagiarism
and taking credit for another's talent . . .
Like a night pirate you come to falsify
to pass a line or a sweet phrase as your own
you make some minor change as a delusion . . .
making it your own.
Your simulacrum of a writer is false
you can cheat and pretend but will never be
for you will never be this girls reflection . . .
just a thief of words !
