Conversation can kill you.
Murder, homicide,
Name it what you will.
Idle chatter is merely another dagger,
To my daydreamer heart.
Maintain the manners,
Laugh in the right places,
Keep your mouth shut,
Yet not too much.
Don't dare to make it bearable.
Refrain from saying what you think.
Don't roll your eyes.
That would be rude, you know.
But then of course you do,
Otherwise you wouldn't agree with me,
Would you?
Sit and listen
To the yammer of weddings, supermarkets
And reality television.
Just don't let them know,
You'd rather be someplace else
And that they're killing you,
Inside.
This is the first of the rejects from my Creative Writing portfolio for university. Poetry is not something I am very good at, I'm very much a prose writer, but I thought I'd share it with you guys. I'd show you what I am submitting but the work gets scanned so it may get flagged up for being on here, after it's marked you'll get to see.
