Not Quite Right

Writing a poem is different
to writing a song.
Heartfelt words from my poems
don’t belong.
They feel heavy and awkward in a song
and it just feels clumsy and wrong.
The song becomes corny and quite trite.

Looking over my poems I have sorted and filed away
I am trying to find one where the meaning will stay.
It has to be one which I am passionate about
or it will be corny, sweet and icky
so I will throw it out.
Words have to be written from the heart
or I will have to go back again to the start.
