poetry from another dimension

no rhyme

No rhyme,

no rhyme

the dude he says

!sister!

!this

!got

no rhyme

no rhyme

 

Rhyme it be like the

imitation of

rhythm

see

ME, i’d rather have the

beat

in

my

blood

 

than a false rhyme

set them words to squeeze together

like a shotgun marriage

 

it’s no divine song

if the meaning is bound by the

rhyme

rhyme

rhyme

rhyme

 

me, I say

who says there ain’t

no rhyme?

 

like you tell the ocean the waves got to crash on

your time?

your time?

your time?

  1. I loved this one! “Set them words to squeeze together like a shotgun marriage..” Love that simile! Sometimes I feel like I force the words to do just that when my writing isn’t cooperating! Love the beat in this one. I can hear a finger snap.

    It’s such a satirical piece that remind me of people who think poetry is all about rhyme.

    Lovely Piece this one!

  4. I completely share your point of view, thats why i keep writing in free form, thats my field of liking. 🙂

    form writing often kills the meaning and the spirit too.
