"When I Write" ... A Poem written by Big Virge 10/4/2006

Sometimes I Write Right Through The Night ... !!!
Until SUNLIGHT ... Retires My Mind ...

I Guess The Darkness Suits My Rhymes ... ?
And The Times I Like To Write ...

I Guess That's Why My Wordplay RILES ... !!!
Because Most FEAR The ... "Cover of NIGHT" ... !!!

But Without The Dark Intertwined With The Light We'd Have A Pretty BORING LIFE ...

Thus When I Write My Pen IGNITES And Sometimes Gives People A FRIGHT ... !!!!!!!

My Writing Style's A DIFFERENT Type And Has SO MANY Word Designs ... !!!
You Could Say PLENTY ... ALWAYS RIPE Awaiting The Return of THOSE Jedi ... !!!!!

My Views Are Shrewd Like ... " Mace Windu " ... !!!

And Write With The FORCE So My Saber ENSURES ... !!!
That The Emperor's Coup Is Thrown ...... OFF Course ..... !!!!!

When I Write It's CLEAR That I REFUSE To Abide To The DARK SIDE ... !!!!!
Because I Am A GOOD JEDI But Jokes Aside My Pen And I ...
ENJOY The Ride When We Choose To Write ESPECIALLY In ... " The Shroud of Night " ... !!!

When I Write Sometimes I Find A Place of ... " Calm " ...
NO Guns In Palms or Nuclear Arms ... !!!

NO EVIL Thoughts Or False Awards ...
Or Need To Hear ... Applause Or Cheers ...

NO Visions of Those Who Choose To Ignore ...
My Use of Prose When My Wordplay SOARS ... !!!!!

WAY ABOVE Their ... " Inane Stuff " ...
When I Write I Feel GOD Touched ... !!!!!

And See The LIGHT Within My Rhymes ...
And Nowadays CAN'T GET ENOUGH ... !!!!!

ENOUGH of YES This Form of Love ...

Sometimes When I Write I FEEL My Mum ...........................................................

As If Her Death Has Bred NEW LIFE ...
Inside My Heart And In My Mind ...
I Guess That's Why I Love To Write ... !!!!

When I Write ... Our Love Still SHINES ... !!!!!

That's Why The Night Suits Me Just Fine To Be The Time I Search My Mind ...
For Written Designs of Simple Prose And Heartfelt Rhymes ... !!!

Rhymes of MANY DIFFERENT Kinds ...
As I Said Before PLENTY ... More and MORE ... !!!
I Write SO MUCH My Hands Get SORE ... !!!!!

I Write Poetry When People ............ sleep ...........
And When Most Watch TV Repeats ... !!!

I'd Rather Write Than Feed My Eyes To TV Shows That Are A JOKE ... !!!!!

But That's Just ME My Words Now Paint Pictures I See ...
Pictures of PEACE And UNITY And Places Where I'd Rather Be ... !!!!!!!!!!

My Words FEED ME ..... " TRANQUILITY " .....

And Help REMOVE My ... " Darker Moods " ...

This Helps Me BREATHE More EASILY And Helps Me Write This Poetry ...
See When I Write It Sets Me FREE To See Beauty And Find Energies ...
That Quell The Anger ... DEEP In Me ... !!!

At Times Like This When Writing Scripts ...
My Use of Words Through Simple Verse ...
CLEARLY SOOTHES And CALMS My Nerves ...
As If I'm With ... THAT SPECIAL Girl ... !!!!!
Who'll LOVE ME In This CRAZY World ... !!!!!

That's What It's Like When I Sit And Write ...
In The Day ... Or ... Late At Night ...

It's Like The Page Becomes A Place Where I Feel SAFE ...

A Place WITHOUT ... " Hate " ... !!!
A Place WITHOUT ... " Rage " ... !!!

A Place Where I Have PEACE of MIND ...
NO POINTLESS Fights Or WICKED Crimes ... !!!

That's What It's Like When I Sit And Write ...
No Need To Recite At Open Mic Nights ... !!!
Or Need To IMPRESS Like SO MANY POETS ...
At ..... " PRETENTIOUS EVENTS " ..... !!!!!!

NO Disrespect Meant But It's Got To Be Said ... !!!!

GREAT Poets REJECT This NEED For ... Pretence ...
And DON'T Indulge In .... ARROGANCE .... !!!!!!

This Simple Piece of Poetic Prose Just Goes To Show ...
How Much I LOVE To Write This Stuff ... !!!!!!!!!!

I Don't Write Prose To Be WELL KNOWN ... !!!

I Write It Now To CALM Me Down ...
And For The LOVE ... " How does that sound ? " ...

Well That Sounds Pretty Good To Me ... !!!

I'd Rather Have THAT Than Write For GREED ... !!!
My Poetry Now ... Means MORE To Me Than ANY AMOUNT of Cash Money ... !!!!!

It Seems Sometimes Most Now Live Life ...
For Money Drugs And POINTLESS Fights ... ?!?
I'm Not Sure If That's ... Wrong Or Right ... ?!?

But Poetry NOW ... UPLIFTS My Life ... !!!
Whether In SUNLIGHT or In ... " The Shroud of Night " ...

It Feels Just Right Now ...
