Here I Come, To Steal Your Words

I can't write, no more
My mind all numb
But God, I have to weave
Won't lay down dumb

And thus here I come
To steal your words
To rob your thoughts
To loot your pearls
And plunder the lots

I envy you o' poet
For the beauty you carve
The soft touch of your rhymes
Serenading
Against the moonlit night
As the waves dance to your tunes
And so does the world

Malevolent you term me
Whatever
I wouldn't lose myself
To the meager honey dipped sweetness
That you so perfectly emote
Repulsive
And my heart cries
Failure and jealousy burn me deep

I probe further
Who cares about originality, anyways
Nay, no more

And thus here I come
To steal your words
To rob your thoughts
To loot your pearls
And plunder the lots

The ugly villain am I
But fame is what I desire
I am a cheat, yes
But that's all there to me
Your success will now be mine

Am addicted to your music
And they would now flow from my pages
Credibility, may be not
But success guaranteed

I am the evil
I am the devil
I would turn your world dark
Curse me how much you like, but
Forgive me for my sins
Your words are what I would steal
Feelings and sentiments I would peel
And then the cosmos would sing my song
Not realizing that I have been always wrong

But, that's it, and here I come
To steal your words
To rob your thoughts
To loot your pearls
And plunder the lots.

  3. Oh wow this is spectacular. Some people aren't born with your poetic soul so they must steal the words for their own. Of course I'm not entirely sure that's what this was about...but it is spectacular nonetheless.
