Types Of Poetic Frustration - Poem by Dyhanara Rios

I tried to write a haiku for you
But it grew too long
Evolving into a song
Wrapped around the sun and morning dewdrops
And giving you props
For making this the best part of my day
In every little way

I tried to write you a sonnet
But almost every line on it
Fell short a few syllables
Not to mention the intensity of end rhyme
Whose rules I broke from time to time

Oh what a curse to have all these words
Trapped in my head
When putting them down on paper
Has only led to poetic frustration

Oh, and I tried to write you a funny poem
But I’ve got pretty dry humor
