"Mere Words"

Poetry is nothing
Without the inspiration
Giving words meaning
Breathing life into the spellings
And lines and punctuations

Poetry is mere words
Splashing upon a page
A senseless splatter -
Meaningless and incoherent
Without a piece of your soul

Poetry is a senseless act
An unforgivable thing
Unless you create like a god
Sweating and bleeding
Upon the pulp of the pages

Poetry is mere words
Empty and hollow
Like an echo only you can hear
Poetry is not even poetry
Until you give it your fever
