I Hate Poetry

I've always hated poetry and usually anything with rhyme
Cause rhyme reminds me of how we like to sound certain ways
And hide what we really feel behind the words we don't mean
Writing words to end sentences with no heart
Poems are the suicide notes left behind by dead dreams
They are the smell on a lover's shirt who's left you
The lipstick smear on the wine glass that sits perched
above the sink so you are reminded everyday of their leaving
That you're not good enough and never will be
I hate poetry
