Take a nice shot, then mess it up.

Most people don't even know
what a poet is nowadays.

It's not someone who writes poetry,
but someone with the ability
to create beautiful things
with pain and to hate yet love them.

I traded my soul for letters,
that I later transformed to words,
together they wrote out all my pain
but I'm starting to miss my soul.

All I have left is these broken w. o. r. d .s.
and I wish I could call myself a poet
but to hate something beautiful,
before you have to create it.

How can one write when one's words are broken
and one's soul is missing?
