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.

Written just so I could give it that lovely little title. Written in a conversational tone. Enjoy.

You'd better cause if you don't.....the world would be missing something, and I'd find out where you live and come after you and force you to keep writing, because something like that is a sin to keep unwritten ;)

Lol. It's a reference to my favorite Tina Turner song "What's Love Got To Do With It?"

Ha ha! This is great! It's one of my favorite pieces of poetry here, and it should definately be in the magazine! And I love the title. :)
