– what this is… –

This is not a curse. This is
not a plague throughout my heart.
This is not the worst, just an-
other frayed false start.
More than just a verse, from a
book conceived from brighter stars,
this is unrehearsed; still I
have to play my leading part.

This is not a kill. This is
not my grand fatality.
This is not a thrill in this
daring, damned “reality”.
All words I don’t know in this
script I flip and go, yet with
each word on the page,
this life I bring to the stage.

D.J. Whisenant
