What’s In A Name

The hardest thing I find

When it comes to writing poetry

Is not the rhythm or the rhyme

The structure or the melody


The words flow from within

The form they take is natural

I put no effort in

To that part of the cycle


Instead, the hardest part for me

Is giving it a title

It’s the first thing people see

It’s so undeniably vital


But how can I compress

My writing’s very essence

And all I want to profess

Into a single word or sentence


So pay no heed, if you please

To the titles that I give

If you find them too precise

For the poetry to live
