I have been told
Poetry is metaphor,
So you should probably use more of them.
So instead of stating blatantly what I feel,
I should use my knowledge of language to cover up
The ugly, or not so wonderful parts.
But there are some things that you just can’t cover up.
Like a bruise, you can only use so much makeup before
Your skin begins to look fake.
You can only use so many metaphors
Until the person you loved becomes
Just another sad love poem.
