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.

Oh yeah... totally not creepy. lol.

 

Thank you so much! I don't really stick big words in my poems or make them long/drag them out because, honestly, I don't like to read poems like that. I can't concentrate on them and lose interest, so I figure there must be other people like that out there. I also think that might be way some teenagers and such don't like reading or writing poetry. I don't know, that's just my view on things.

Lol, no, not creepy at all O.o...

 

I think that more people concentrate on being all "Artistic" in their writing and deep and emotional other than just stating their point.  I'm kinda guilty of this, but it seems too many people think they're doing it so good when they're not, and others tell them they are, and it gets kind of annoying.  You're just short, sweet, and to the point, with a little meaning and wit thrown in.  I wish more people wrote like that.

Wow. Thank you so much. That makes me feel so good knowing that you want me to keep writing so much (but it would be creepy if you came to my house and forced me to write). xD
