An Honest Slam

I tried to write an honest slam
but my words got in the way
I tried to sort the words out
but my pen wont work today
I tried to switch to pencil
but the lead was short and dull
and when I tried to sharpen it
the sharpener was full
I emptied out the sharpener
and tried to clear my head
by opening a window
but the breeze came in instead
and took my stack of papers
blew them out into the street
I found myself run out the door
in t-shirt and bare feet
so I tried to write an honest slam
‘I love you’ is all it said
but since I failed I guess I’ll just
keep writing lies instead
