He believes to be

When did he think
he was possible?

why did he
twitch at
the ray of light?

why did he blink
to the sound of voices?

how will he cry out
where no mercy dares echo?

who taught him to believe in Life
when he was not wanted?

Who will tell him as he awaits to breathe?

edit fit

love me like i belong

i do not fit

but here i sit

and refuse to be removed

countless times

you’ve read it

what need more

is there to edit?

i mess up the flow

 have no profound meaning to add or show

adjectives pretend to be my friends

but honestly are much too clingy

and those obnoxious adverbs affect me quite adversely

but do not…do not replace me

with those presumptuous ellipses

i do not rhyme

and have no rhythm

but i have been here so very long

so just love me

like i belong

 

It believes to be

when did it think
it was possible?

why did it
twitch at
the ray of light?

why did it rise
to the sound of voice?

how did it show rhythm
when no heart
beats for it?

why will it bleed longing
when it swims in bile?

how will it cry out
where no mercy dares echo?

why does it yearn to move
and leave a trace of mistake?

how does it breathe
in suppressed want?

who taught it to believe in Life
when it is not wanted?
