Best Poem of Christian Connor Schwantes

Social Songs

Lyrics are harsh and filled with classical malice
Drinking in tears dripped into its chalice
Where logic binds it, time can’t define it
Suicide seems suitable
Euthanasia created a melodic fantasia
Composed with the hammering of heart beats
Sung by the choir of the simpletons
The heart is beating between the sheets
Received by the lifeless as a roaring sensation
Tempo caused by the lure of temptation
Another piece of unoriginal creation
So slip on in and find me hiding
Humming away a model tune
Hoping for a revolution conceived too soon
Into the night ...

Mating Call

The problem with poems is how the soul seeps out.
Through the cracks of the consciousness,
Meditating on mastering the marvelous
Pondering perfection to perform to the other sex
Getting caught in drama of simple text
Looking ahead to contemplate what comes next
They’re just games, the poems we rearrange
Feelings felt by all, short and tall
Something you never meant to say

[Hata Bildir]
