Dear hand,//

I admire your strength, beauty, and perseverance/
I know I put you through a lot,/ but you are always there for me/
The burn I left on you from the hot oven/
The unattractive, chipped, black nail polish/
The accidental fall /
And every know and then, blisters from my #2 pencil,/
You must really despise that thing by now//

But you have survived/
You survived the harsh winter/
The un-bearingly hot summer/
The breezy fall/
And the rainy spring//

Your silk brown skin compliments the rest of me/
Your long fingers provide me with some help/
Even your small beauty mark reminds me of how precious you are/
I use you for sports/
I use you for eating/
I use you for working/

But you have gotten your revenge,/
The slip-ups, where your fingers scratch me too hard/
Where they land in my eye or nose/
You know what I am talking about//

But then again maybe you don’t,/ because you do not have eyes/
You cannot speak with out a mouth/
You cannot hear with out ears/
And you cannot understand what I am talking about/
After all, you are just a hand//

Pencils all the way! Of course, I will type the stuff out later on the computer, and typing as all amazing, but when writing I prefer pencils (even though they smear) so that I can erase my mistakes since I make so many of them, haha C:

well random's good too. Unless you don't have paper and a pencil with you, then it sucks. Do you like pencils better or pens? or typing?

Well, I guess not ALL night, but only an hour or two of sleep can't really count for anything, can it? I have so many ideas at night that I feel like I'm writing too fast and then my pencil will send sparks and then my house will burn down. I wrote a poem about that, and the idea came at night. C:

I love that. C: Have you gotten a callus on your hand that shall forever remain to remind you of your accursed love of writing that keeps you up all night, well, writing something? (Maybe you don't stay up all night, but sometimes I do.) This is one of your best poems by far, in my opinion. Awesome work!
