What the Pencil Holds

The eraser a pencil of comfort

When navigating those pages

To act solely as a buffer

Between incompatible phrases


But there's more than sentences broken

To what the pencil holds

It's millions of words unspoken

And billions of stories untold


Sometimes the marks are purposely made

To aid in self revelation

The writer lost in the abyss

That is their own contemplation


Like stars other pieces brighten

Masking deep layers to be unfurled

Primarily meant to inspire, enlighten

Or inevitably shock the world
