Slay me gritty, not pretty


Poets are savages,
taming them,
fatigues their words

-Wesam El dahabi

I have an issue with people,
who try to make their words pretty,
or who only want to hear pretty things.

Dishonesty doesn’t sit well with me.

I prefer gritty, over pretty.

Even if you’re totally opposed to me,
be so, with tenacity and teeth,
with rage and heart.

Slay me with one hand,
and have the bandages ready with the other.

We’re savagely fierce and savagely beautiful.
