Written for ViM's Found Poem Friday :) The prompt: Write a found poem with the lyrics from "Creep" by Radio Head. Keep in mind, you are limited to only use words that are FOUND 😉 in the original work (no words can be used that are not in the song lyrics)

~

i belong in a perfect hell

not your beautiful world

i wish you were happy

but i'm not in control

so i run...

i don't wanna fuckin' run

i want to float like an angel

i wanna belong

you want a perfect body?

i want a perfect soul

i don't care if i cry

but your beautiful hurts

you're so special

i'm a creep

whatever

you belong here

i don't

so i run...

    "But I'm not in control". That line hit me so sad 🥺 Loved your poem so much my sweet looney partner!

    Holy MOLY that's powerful! "you want a perfect body? i want a perfect soul," is a line that will stay with me. Wow, Heather! Just wow!

    Oh, this is breathtaking! I agree with Lamar - ‘You want a perfect body? I want a perfect soul’ was spectacular! 😍

    Ha! Awesome! ‘You want a perfect body? I want a perfect soul’ Love the placement of those lines. We can’t always get what we want. I remember cranking that tune every time it came on MTV.
