Rumours from the street

Related image

Once upon a time in a dark cold place
I used to hear a voice that seemed awful two-faced
It would say these strange things that would lack conviction
Far-fetched tales proclaiming them as non-fiction
That in mind; it’s time for yous to leave
Consider these evictions for the poor depictions of just how cruel life can really be
If things get any worse, we’ll all be on our knees
Knees, please; I never did believe
The rhetoric, gossip
The rumours from the street

Delusions in the mind, just a rumour from the street
Rhetoric, gossip, rumours from the street.

Delusions in my mind, just a rumour from the street
Rhetoric, gossip, rumours from the street.

Now this ones called, wait; I don’t know
I don’t have skills, I don’t have flow
I’ve thirty-three years yet i’m still unknown
There goes another secret that I swore i’d never show
Still i’ve grown, i’m older and wiser
Ambitions with life to get much higher
To maybe start the family or even get the wife
The sort of stuff I had around me
That’s the tragedy of time
I used to spend mine searching for a sign
I’d look at other people, apply my judgement to their lives
I turn back to myself, you know what I find
Another loser piece of trash with delusion in the mind!

Delusions in the mind, just a rumour from the street
Rhetoric, gossip, rumours from the street.

Delusions in my mind, just a rumour from the street
Rhetoric, gossip, rumours from the street.

Delusions in my mind, just a rumour from the street
Rhetoric, gossip, rumours from the street.

  1. This poem is very powerful. It makes me think. I find that the best poets are able to pull personalities and points of view from others OTHER than themselves. I always worry when I read an intense, melancholy poem that it’s a reflection of the writer. Well, after all my babble I want you to know I really enjoyed this poem.

  2. Thanks Claudia, I am glad you enjoyed it 🙂 It’s always interesting to entertain the negative part our characters in the modern word and I think that’s what I was going for with this. I’m trying to develop it as more of a spoken word piece.

  3. Your poem is lighter than some I’ve read, which begs me to ask…do you think poets are as dark as some of their writings? I always enjoy the deep ones, although they do make me sad sometimes to think that someone is in such a dark place. I never know whether to address that side or to just enjoy the poem for what it is. (usually the second choice)

    1. Hi Claudia, hope you are well. Sorry for the super late reply, struggling to keep blogging atm as really busy working n not got laptop for now which has always been my preferred medium. I just read poems as I feel they come across. I write really dark poems but I’m a really positive person I swear haha I find that for me i use poetry n spoken word as an outlet for that side of my persona haha a great question though n an interesting concept for sure. I’ve started doing live stuff now which I’ll hopefully post soon. i read many poems n think i wonder what that person is like but I guess you can never really know, especially when many are still learning the trade so to speak. A great question though, I totally relate!😃
