Oh, Pen Heart


Quill me, quell me,
cast your spell. Me
-ander me through
storm and strum.

Tell me, till me,
whim and will me,
uncage heart and
spill its thrum.

Assemble me from
ink within, and
tremble me across
your skin.


NaPoWriMo, day 26.

    I have to wonder, with each and every poem of yours I read, if I will ever, ever, EVER, not think to myself, “Why can’t I write like this?” WOW!!
