Favorite Quote:
If you imagined it, it's possible -Albert Einstein


Words spill out onto the page
Looking
For the right friend
That matches itself
That fits just right
Subjects flirt with the adverbs
Conjunctions chase the phrases
So many combinations
But which one is right
Is up to you
The supervisor
You try to guide the words
Fit them together
Hoping they get along
But they fight
They bicker
But you push them together
Only to receive the same negative reaction
You pull them apart
Frustrated
Discouraged
At the finickiness of the words
But you try again
Not all your determination lost
And there it is
The perfect marriage of words
Creating the exact picture
That your mind was trying to convey


The author's comments:
Writing poetry isn't always easy, but when you find that perfect combination of words...it's definitely worth it!
