The Worst Poem Ever Written

January 2, 2012
I will not ruin the grace of a blank page
With my words of forlorn or happiness.
I will not create the poem at the edge of my pen,
And destroy the calming numbness of the unyielding white.
I will not burst into spontaneous emotion,

Or let my imagination run wild for all to see.
I will not put one spot of color on the canvas of words;
Not one drop of black, purple, blue, or green.
I will not write the poem burning in the back of my brain,
For it is sure to be the worst poem ever written.

Cool idea, a poem about not writing a poem. I love the irony of it. Great job! Keep on writing Sammy! :)

Great idea, love the irony. A poem about not writing a poem - like one of mind, except mine was about trying to write a poem, but losing the inspiration before I could write it down (Absconding Inspiration). This is still a great poem - and the best part is that you didn't have to destroy the pure white of a sheet of paper for it! ;)
