Innovate! Don’t Hate by Stephy Jay Silvers

Punk Noir Magazine

As I sit hunched

over this greasy keyboard,

unable to write

anything substantial,

I close my eyes and

My bitter little heart

screams your name

Into a void of dissatisfaction and unfulfilled needs.

I wish I could

Take this time,

anger, bitterness, effort

and energy

and go

and write

something that should

gain me

the attention

I so dearly crave

But alas, I have no such talent

only having

Salty bitter tears

That flow so easily

unlike the meaningful words

I can not write
