“Isn't it splendid to think of all the things there are to find out about? It just makes me feel glad to be alive--it's such an interesting world. It wouldn't be half so interesting if we know all about everything, would it? There'd be no scope for imagination then, would there?But am I talking too much? People are always telling me I do. Would you rather I didn't talk? If you say so I'll stop. I can STOP when I make up my mind to it, although it's difficult.”
― L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

The is the first poem, the first fleeting inspiration, in so long.


And I tried so hard to fight it and tell myself I was wrong.


But, maybe its the way you always seem to consider what I think,


Or your goofy half smile that spills on the pages of my mind like sunshine-colored ink.


I am always right, but I had to reconsider the way I saw the world when you ever-so-slightly tilted my frame of mind


On that car ride home, I think I smiled with the radio off and let the cassette tapes unwind.


"This is just a dumb poem" is what I'll tell myself tonight,

But for the first time in my life, I thought my dumb poem might fit you just right.
