The Naked Truth

The Naked Truth

A Poem by Silent Pacer
"

Here is a poem, duh, about well kinda explains for itself. This is something that has been there for sometime, but just bubbled over. Thus, trying to vent said rage, and pain.

"

 

Lying, naked on the floor,
Do you mean all you say?
Do you truly mean to do what you do?
Are your actions speaking?
Am I not notable enough to be considered?
These are the questions I long to ask,
But couth prohibits said questions.
What a drown,
 For they are poison to me.
 
Here the truth simmers,
Do you not see what you’re doing?
Or are you so vain?
Is it my job to coddle you?
To raise you?!
Why do I have to suffer when you raptures?
You spit in my face and offer no revere.
 
Don’t think I’m so naive,
I hear your words,
What you say about “friends”,
I long to hate you,
These people care for you,
They love you,
Why treat them so?
Your vial,
Not worthy of the company you keep,
Don’t you worry though,
They know what companionship you are.
 
I can’t spite you,
I love you,
You are my friend,
I’ve cared for you,
Why? I still know not,
However, every night as I lie broken,
Bruised and battered from another days abuse,
I long to be able to loathe,
To surpass couth,
And say what I yearn to say,
The naked truths.

Ok, here's the deal. I haven't wrote a poem for about 10 months. I'm very very rusty. So if you would be so kind, help we whip back into shape, so to speak, and get back to writing. I was so fed up with it after my english creative writing class, I forgot my passion for it, and want it back. Thanks! really appreciate it!

I liked the subject matter hicjh you present in poetic prose.but IMHO you would speak more strongly
in a rhymed and metered format. Creative writing classes are usually taught by hacks who can neiher write themselves or teach anyone any more than the basics. Passion and cimpulsion to write are what makes poets
Of course I am a dyed in the wool formalist but even if free form is your preference an understanding of meter the essential ingredient which distinguishes prose from poetry would be of benefit
