You can't be the ones used for school testing.
Too artificially happy, distracting me too much,
making me score lower.
word vomit as I screech you across the page.
You have to be able to channel my thoughts,
words, and sketches,
be able to make me cherish you
and cry for when I lose you.
Seduce me with your form, the outside
as well as the inside.
Inspire me
as you run smoothly along surfaces.
I need the right pencil.
Is it you?

We were reading a poem that was looking for a reader and I wrote this while we were listening to it. Sadly, I don't remember who wrote it or what it was called.
