Poem Challenge 18

Listen to your favorite song and use it as a foundation of rhythm and flow to create a contemporary poem. Only write while listening to the track.

“Pet” by A Perfect Circle

Pay no mind to the monsters
who sneak and plot
behind the curtain of sanity in my mind
Counting scars on my body
Counting every sin and misdeed
When I spread my gossamer wings
They claw and rip me to shreds
I’ll be reborn in the hell fire
Load guns when fighting for peace
Counting bullets that strike
A new rhythm to free me from fear
Just stay with me
Safely go back to sleep
