"I have a life. I just choose to ignore it."
-one of my friends


Spoken words,
Whispered to the soul,
Rustled pages,
Worn with age,
Fingers flitting,
Over black typed words,
Scripted onto the page,
Perfect letter,
After perfect letter,
Of poetry,
Each stanza,
Entwined into my heart,
Like a love note,
Just for me,
Comforting or disturbing,
Silly or deep,
Sad or happy,
Doesn’t matter,
They all take my breath away,
Every emotion,
And broken promise,
Every true thought,
And lie spoken,
Spilled from the hearts,
Of poets,
To be captured,
Forever more,
In the perfectly typed,
Perfectly lettered,
Black inked words.

Wow, this is a stunning write! "Each stanza, entwined into my hear, like a love note, just for me." That is such a gorgeous description! I really like the depth that you put into this, and I think the flow is smooth and fluid. Isn't it great when something just lights the spark of inspiration, and voila, here comes a masterpiece!

this is a really good poem; I can relate.

Just as a kindof off-topic story, I sometimes have what I call a "Blank-Out Moment." where I'll just sit there with a pen/pencil and paper or at my computer with MW up, I'll be blank minded and writing/drawing/typing...then I'll come to my senses and see a poem or drawing and it's like..."Where did that come from?..." lol....I know it's weird I still dont understand it but I figured thats kinda what happened with this.

This poem sums up my emotions when I write, too!  Only us writers know how powerful and thrilling it can feel.  Very nice.

Oh. Right. I feel sooooo stupid right now.  But it actually took me a little bit to think of the ending lines, but probably only about a minute or two.

It has short lines, but they are all very meaningful, and well written too. Good job, just double check the grammar. Bravo!
