if i were a poet

if i were a poet,
secrets would spill
from deep within me,
coating the
page
like the blanket of night.
my words would
shine like
glistening stars,
and my audience
would wish upon
my metaphors.

but alas, i am not a poet
and these are just ordinary
words

=) I love the imagery, but those aren't ordinary words. (Insert the word -extra- before ordinary, and you might have it right.)
