Yours Truly

Yours Truly

A Poem by Radad Ibn Nasir

A reminder how the truth hurts.


I clench with the guilt of your shame

Yours truly, Blame.

Condensed with an ounce of pain

An unruly grain.


I form a hideous perception too real

Yours truly, Sex Appeal.

Scorned reflections intercept  zeal

Lustily you kneel.


I hide my monster you so easily unleash

Yours truly, Mr. Beseech.

Slide saunter and crooked underneath

A step away from each.


I throb woefully at your ignorant ways

Yours truly, Praise.

Bobbed knowingly, confidant play

Acting so far away.

You did a great job of showing human emotion, while pushing these single titled concepts, praise and blame. Blame eventually leads everywhere.

Wow. This is great.
It's got a kinda dark humour feel about it, but that just makes it all the better.
Great stuff. :)

Great rhythm. Great write.

Oh so brilliant. the cadence of the rythym is amazing.
There are so much hidden truths in your words, it's almost a labyrinth to walk in, but with a bit of empathy you can already know/feel them...
Excellently done!

Love the rhyme and the flow, hard to be ourselves sometimes until we find someone who is comfortable with what we are and have to say. Something I think most can relate to for sure. Nice job.

Wow. This was fantastic and mind-blowing poetry. It is succint, with perfect rhymes, is insightful and ends up strumming the strings of the mind for the reader to realize and relate to the thought. Very well penned. Going to my favourites. :)

This is just an all around relentless and truthful piece of writing. It holds nothing back, but also doesn't stretch out with a clutter of useless words. It is straight to the point and cuts right into the heart of what it describes. Very nice

A voice without a canvas is just an echo heard throughout time. Sometimes children ask me to play, so I play. The elderly beckon with wisdom and I syphon. I think I was born an expression... I hav.. more..
