Erased

Where do words go when they get erased?
Do they go to some secret and faraway place?
Or go into your eraser- is that what they do?
Waiting patiently there to be born anew?
Do they climb up your body, and back into your brain?
Do they just fall off of your paper, with patters like rain?
Do they hide under desks, make homes under chairs,
Do they sneak into your clothes through your rips and tears?
Do they fly into the sky, float off all about,
Til they find a new pencil from which to come out?
Are they stored by some person, in boxes, on shelves?
Well I guess we’ll never know,
Until that day comes,
When we get erased ourselves.

I really like this poem.  Its clever and fun to read.  I like the last line.  I agree with love2run, I think it adds meaning.

This is really good, and I think the last line gave it a deeper meaning than one would first think.

I totally like this, it's like arandm thought that you played upon.It's creative. One suggestion tho I  think the last line is a little weak kinda thru it offf. Besides that I like it.&Same to you keep writing =)
