Have you ever written something
just to
fill
up
the
page
?
Random nonsense that no makes
sense.
Everyone has done it
or I could be lying,
but you'd never know that
would you?
Unless you are one of
them,
one of
those
people who write with meaning
and heart.
I guess
they
have never listened to
Tina Turner.
I have,
but I could be lying about that too.
I might be an ant
for all you know.
Granted a very large ant…
or a very small computer
you'll still never know,
but do we ever know anything?

Too serious?
I agree.
Lets never speak of this
again.

The author's comments:
Written just so I could give it that lovely little title. Written in a conversational tone. Enjoy.

Arguably, I spend more time on the title than the poem. Thank you very much for your wonderful comment. <3 I'll be sure to check out some of your work when I have the chance.

I don't know how much thought you put into your titles, or if they pop, but they all grab my attention. Also, the poem after the title is just as great and thought provoking. Come to think of it, you're screenname grabs attention too! Check out some of my work if you can. :)

Lol. I do. My friends find me horribly amusing sometimes because I'll be rambling and then they'll cut me off and talk about something else and I'll join in then right after before they have the chance to really say anything more, I'll go back to my original topic and keep rambling. xD
