I am afraid
Of stating my thoughts
And my dreams.
Pretty words
Come with a high price.
If you take a simile
(Stretch it, spin it,
Weave a web)
Soon enough
It is nonsense.
Complete, utter nonsense.
Tell me what it is like
To have stardust in your veins -
"Frostbitten veins stitched with
Wanderlust
And forgotten gods" -
For autophobic ghosts
Do not
Reside in my head,
Howling their epiphanies
Like wolves
On a moonless summer night.
Hence my need for pretty words
And secondhand devices.
Am I right to be afraid?
They told me
Being a poet is easy;
Just amplify your pain
And air it out
On the clothesline of life.
(But what if I wish to cry
In a corner
Instead?)
Writing a poem is like driving a car: it sucks, but it's necessary.

Huh. I was expecting something totally different when I started reading this poem, but this is quite lovely. The imagery was a nice touch, too.
