It's not poetry because it rhymes.

It's not poetry because it's not fiction.


It's poetry because it moves

beyond the pain you feel or choose

it's eyes that see then say what's whose

then stir your feelings like they're hues.

Another tongue, a few more limbs

not to enhance but complement

and we're all lacking, we're all flawed

it says you are and when you're wrong.


If you don't feel you can be hurt.

If you don't think you will be hurt.
