ALL – Angst Poetry returns to RiotACT

By johnboy - 28 July 2005 29

For those who’ve been missing “johnboy life theatre” I now offer a small piece of where I’m at.

If you don’t like angst ridden blank verse then best give it a miss.

ALL

You can offer it all
Everything you’ve got. All that you are.
The very essence of your being.

The best bottles of wine, the funniest DVD’s
The smoothest dacquiris, the coolest shows.
Witty conversation into the smallest hours.

You can share the deepest secrets of your soul
And the darkest desires of your heart.
All your fears, all your hopes.

But, if you were born without that vital spark,
Some tiny missing piece of character,
And personality.

Then all you can do is lie between your teeth,
Run before the wind,
And pray you can fake it long enough.

Because no-one will love you for your honesty.

What’s Your opinion?

Actually JB I liked your poem and anyway, we’ve all been there. Hey it could have been worse, you could’ve sent her a mix tape!

You didn’t…did you? 😉

It’s an old thread.

Leave it alone people.

Dagnabbit. And I really liked Thumper’s quote too. Who resurrects old post, esp. ones this old, leading the masses astray?!

Thumper said :

Yeah Nik,

I forgot. Lyrics these days go something like this;

‘Oh baby baby,
yeah baby baby’
uh huh huh
oh baby’

And thats the verse!

Pool Room!

That’s kind of true and not true all at once.

lol (but jealous – I can’t write any poetry, blank or umm, not blank?)

AD,

nope. I just laughed my head off. I could just see the Archie’s singing those lyrics!

And you’re right, its not R&B, that is an insult to all the real R&B/ Motown artists.
