Calamity of the Poetic Mind

18 Oct


By: Tony L. Jefferson, Jr.


The flow of my pen

The curve of my script

Blends the confusion of thoughts

Expressed by a mad man on a mission

Genius and insanity are kissing cousins

These unique words intertwine in your mind and bend your thought process

They weave a story

They weave a rhyme

Sprawled across a blank page are words

Plucked from the realm of my unconscious

Randomness travels from a neuron to the landscape of paper

Like an artist on a canvas I paint a tapestry with my words

In a trance I write

Hypnotized by the inspirational muse that finds me that day



Each feeling draws a verse from the pages in my mind

I laugh at the absurdity of my mind as a book

The greatest story never told

These poems are pages of an unwritten masterpiece

    Nice poem.

    I agree with what you put on my site, the person who wrote that spam should be shot.

    Totally amazing, I love the way it is written, though not rhyming but holding deep meanings and makes you totally get in its mood, feel free to contact me to discuss this much further.

    Dude, you should totally publish something. A collection or an exhibition. ANYTHING.
