poets make poems

'tis the pain that is felt in the deepest
deepest darkest core of heart
'tis the pain...pain within that makes
verses of pain, lyrics of hurt...
'tis the poem that stabs the most
uneager senses...not the man
not the poet...

for what is a poet without a poem
and what is a man without a pain?

it is the love that makes the lovers
not the lovers who make the love
'tis the pain that lovers felt
felt deep...deep within
that makes them cry out loud
to the most unwilling ears
not the lovers...

alas! 'tis the poem that makes the poet
and not the other way around.
