Needed a break from Emarosa.
NaNoWriMo continues on.
For the writers, I hope your writing goes well.
“Crayon for a Writer”
I wanted to draw a picture, but I didn’t know where to start.
I’m terrible with fine lines and erasers never work.
Tried tracing once or twice, but it never comes our right.
I always crumple the paper.
I wanted to draw a picture, but the colors were all gone.
It was supposed to be a gift for you, or was it for me?
It would’ve been a lovely sunset, or perhaps a sunrise.
Those are less depressing.
I wanted to draw a picture, but the setting wasn’t right.
The music was off and lighting’s all wrong.
I guess I could decorate an envelope.
But I’ve no letters to send.
I wanted to draw a picture, but I didn’t know how it’d end.
Hard to begin when there’s nowhere to go.
Graphite turns the page from gray to grayer.
Keeps the wastepaper basket employed.
I wanted to draw a picture, but I didn’t know what to say.
So I wrote you a poem instead.
