Sweet Taste of Ink

Ink don’t taste so sweet,

Not when it tastes like copper,

A taste that has become all too familiar

From scrapes and scratches

From younger years,

Growing younger and younger still

With each passing day.

Ink don’t taste so sweet,

Not when the words speak of gloom,

Of demise, dejection and damnation;

Not when it pours from a hand

Of lies feathered with excuses,

Things we’ll learn to live with,

To live with and maybe love.

Ink don’t taste so sweet,

Not since the younger years gave birth

To generations of sad reality

And to waves of mistrust and uncertainty

And what I would give to have

The taste of sweet ink yet again,

From when words spoke of truth,

From when written verses sing,

And innocence was not a dream.
