the thorough thinker

The thorough thinker
opened his
mouth and thrust
his bold blade
of belittlement
deep into
my heavy heart of hope.
Slashing it’s
way into the sulking
sands of
cynicism .

Last few words: 
My inspiration is the play cyrano de bergerac it’s hard to think because my head these past two days has been killing me so forgive me for the stanzas i’ve been writing a story when i can think or am not hurting so much.

It seems that the days and hours that people
are available for chatroom are staggered and
not a good match for most everyone. How about
if everyone just shows up at the door, whenever
they have a few free minutes?

and i hope your doing well
i’m going to fix the word

Hlm life without literature is a life without logic.

It's truly deep-cutting, a melancholic expression.

Well expressed.

gives
the poets
the free will to
embroider a good tale
and deviate from the established rules of language"~Jackweb
