In pursuit of poetry

In pursuit of poetry

Long ago I was a poet with a pursuit

I was everything I couldn’t be,

In poetry.

Today, I am not that anymore

Today, I am one with reality

I am not me,

Ironically.

I don’t talk about the purple sun

Or, about the waves that murmur secrets to the shore

I can’t stick to the seventeen syllable Haikus anymore

I tried,

I failed,

Horribly.

Long ago I was a poet with a pursuit

Turns out I couldn’t be,

A genius,

In poetry.

Today, I am one with reality

I am not me,

Ironically.
