Do Not Date A Poet - Poem by john chizoba vincent

Do not date a poet because
Everyone would think he paint you
With his endless packs of words.
You may likely be the jerk he write,
A Poet has unnatural affection for you;
He write and snore while sleeping.
He speak and speak to get your ears deaf.
You may see him talking to animals, sky and the
Deaf cloud who listen to him not and you get scared.

(I have seen one in my street in the act)

Do not date poets because
They are more knowledgeable than you.
You can not win them in an argument and
Many of them walk in the air as they sit to write.
Their poetry hands may not give you affection and love because it is made of unseen words and metaphoric similes.
Do not date poets because they would abuse you as They Abuse their poetic licence without been arrested.

(Let poets be the poet they are meant to be)

Do not date poets because
Their Melancholy would get you insane,
Their dramatic emphasis would get you imprisoned.
They refuse to care where the remote of words is,
Many of them walk on oceans while writing.
While talking; they go to west, north, south and east,
And you are still in the same spot with them.
You will shade sorrowful tears in the street when you date fantastic poets.

(Poets are never truthful and they lack wisdom)

Do not date budding poets,
They dance and see what is within things
whilst other see the outside of a thing.
They touch what you can't touch and see
What you can not see in million years.
All their furnitures are positioned for them to stare and get themselves worn out in the course.
Their pots, kitchen, tables, spoons, cups and flowers are their source of inspiration, you can get mad at them when they stand staring at those things.
Many think they are possess by evil or rather they are witches and wizards in a man clothing.

(I have seen many possess by words and died by swords)

Never you date poets without your wisdom;
They might not get your time in the night.
They would judge your metaphor in the morning,
They carry books everywhere even in parties;
They are obsessed with fantacy and loneliness.
They listen to the music you hate and love those you despised in the afternoon because they want to write.
Their talking and conversations are too long to be waited upon.

(They are one of those that visited heaven while on earth)

You can never predict a poets' direction and movement when you walk with them in the afternoon.
They visit many holes before you dream of them,
Poets opinions are longer to form and agreed upon.
They talk to everyone on the street and that may scare you away,
They think they can help everyone that cry and those that laugh in the dungeon.
Poets would make you empty and heart harden,
They are drama and crave for plots that Twist;
Their greatest fear is no will and not been published.

(I know many with that plight not me)

Poets disgrace you before you disgrace yourself,
They have their own antagonist and nemesis back door.
Poets abuse asyndeton and they are addicted to poetry than their families and love ones.
Whatever that is wrong, they have a tea for it and they Can cook solution for every problems without getting caught.
They can only visit cities with poetry flavours.
Do not date a poets and his pen because he would frustrate you before you frustrate yourself.

(Poets are the most dangerous men on earth that I know)
