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.
