Be afraid of poets

*inspired by “Poem”by Zeehan Sahil*

Be afraid of poets.

They will eat the roses from your cheeks,

weep crocodile tears into your open wounds,

and leave their love in every damn part of you.

Be afraid of poets,

You will be second to the art,

a pale comparison to the stanzas that keep them breathing,

keep their heart beating. 

Be afraid of poets,

they will always love words

more than you.
