A Ballad for Death

A compilation of the first 500 poems I ever wrote.
I write in my free time accross different styles and themes, sometimes there are reasons to what I write and sometimes there are not, but I always try to follow my inspiration.


210. I'm not a poet

Oh many have wondered yet some only have asked

How I write poetry with such facility,

I would reply to them that my fertility

Is but an illusion, but a bleak talent masked

In a myriad of words carefully handcrafted

From other geniuses and lines I have drafted

Through short passing moments of intense clarity,

A simple will to write suffices to create

– Without the need to keep artistic purity –

What will, through my readers, emotions permeate.
