Kill the poet with his ink, for the pen is mighty. Take from him that which he write; his soul belongs to the sea.

Kill the Dreamer
Written by Adam M. Snow

Kill the poet with his ink,
for the pen is mighty.
Take from him that which he write;
his soul belongs to the sea.

Kill the artist with his paint,
his flowers have no scent.
Take from him that which he paints;
break his brush and don't repent.

Kill the singer with his song;
a silent mouth is musical.
Take from him that which he sings;
he was born to appall.

Kill the dreamer with his dreams;
he who cannot sleep.
Take from him that which he dreams,
his visions, he cannot keep.

We seek to kill the dreamer's soul,
a witch hunt we thrive for.
We forget the gift that God has given,
in return we shut the door.

We steal the dreams the dreamer's dreamt;
the desire of a selfish being.
A tormented soul we leave behind,
that goes without seeing.

What have we in life become?
Thieves of a poet soul.
Chose to take the pen away,
leaving his heart a blacked hole.

We take for granted that of life,
and take from others dream.
In reality, should embrace our own,
a gift from God in light esteem.

Very thought provoking and sad. Creativity is one of the things that make humans tolerable. And where would we be without it? Scary.

Some nice rhymes in this piece. The word in the second to last stanza should be blackened.

If you take away a painters paint and a dreamers dreams you leave them but an empty shell. This poem makes you think deeply.
