Poetic & Rhetoric

Elude me

When writing
For something
Truly poetic like

The life of a father
But trapped inside
Sentences and strange

Rhetoric that mar my
Mind like an apple bruise
Makes me glare at Poetry

That constant friend who
In this moment shrugs
Shakes her head sadly

Helpless except to soothe
Me in this moment when

Elude me
