    I wanted to write a poem.

    I wanted to write a poem,
    Rugged, weary and hidden poem with lines as phloem.
    Empty, void vacuum poem with no echo.
    A meager poem like the grin of a banded gecko.

    I wanted to write a poem,
    Scripted with a black fur of a chicken,
    But how could I not hurt the hen?
    How could I avoid distorting chicken fur emblem?

    I wanted to write a poem,
    A sad strange epic poem.
    With scary monster like symbolized lines.
    Make them lines unique as geneticist clines.

    I wanted to write a poem
    With deep words like the plants xylem.
    Then I couldn't, I could not even opine
    With that feeling restraining the pain to my spine.
