"Ability may get you to the top, but it takes character to keep you there." Anon


This pen of mine tries to write
Something very special
But all that I hear in my heart
Is a tinkly crash
So by now my words are written
On a crumpled paper next to my heart

Loosely gathered thoughts scrawl
Across this paper like a bundle of straw
Though it's heavy as though the straw was gravel

All I am sure of is that my pen is under
The binding spell of a passionate
Heart that won't quit hoping
Wishing to see you again

As this pen of mine tries to write
Hoping this is something very special
Echoing out is a tinkly crash
A sound so beautiful yet grievous
Because of a heart that wouldn't
QUIT

People shouldn't try to interpret this. If they do, then they are trying too hard. This is simply a message given to an audience point blank.
