I Wrote Back My Life
« on: August 28, 2019, 01:39 PM »
Time I did a rhymer it has been awhile

I wrote back my life

I wrote back my life and it was not remotely the same
the boring and mundane was completely disolved into fame
I claimed all the women my fantasy had sten‎ciled in my head
I watched as they fought for the right to decorate my bed

When I opened my window a ripe peach would fall in my hand
the birds formed a choir and wore my name as an arm band
I was a sinner but sinning had became the new rage
attending church on Sunday still erased the weeks page

People stood at my locked gate just to say hail to the chief
and Dorothy Malone arose from the grave to stop my grief
My house was so big a limo would deliver me to the bathroom
I was every woman's pick to be her dream fantasy bridegroom

I had a physique that made Charles Atlas look like a skeletor
I could out run a cheetah and write and sing like a troubadour
I was an intellect ten times smarter then Albert Einstein
when I snapped my fingers the entire universe would align

Suddenly it hit me this would be just too much power to own
and my old reliable self would be stranded all alone
So I wrote back on my wrote back and ask nature to forgive
because who am I to forge their will and demand to relive

a good poet is like a bride
Something old, something new, something borrowed
but mostly you.

Interesting view ... I think reliving it keeps us young.  I'll read this one a few more times.

Skelator was pretty ripped. Just ugly and misunderstood.
