Trying

Poetry is trying
  just like lying
  relates to love
it's often black
and sometimes lack
   anything
but minor keys.
Let it burn you,
   like her letters,
but save the ash

  4. lack of minor keys - how melodic an image - highly poetic and what a great ending!
    definitely captured the essence of pain and rejection, but phoenixes rise!
