Maybe the sky will open up
and something will fall out.
I don't know what it would be.
Just a little something to tide me over
until the seas part
and I can walk on water.

The picture was a fairly good give away, but I wasn't exactly sure. Then it hit me. xD I can be slow sometimes.

Oops, sorry about that. I probably should have let you know who I was - there was no random stranger jumping in the convo. Haha

Hey some of the best poems come when we are tired.  This was random, yes, but interesting, and more deep than you'd think. Yet again, and eye-catching title.

My autograph when I'm horribly tired? I doubt I would write a masterpiece. I would probably try to sign my name and it would look like a toddler learning to write his name... o.o Yeah... it's probably be best if I were fully conscious.

Hehe. I'm glad you are a fan of my work.

My dream is to be the Lady Gaga of poetry. Odd dream, eh?

okay,

it's official.

I love your work.

Maybe someday I'll try to get your autograph when your horribly tired,

but instead it will just be a thoughtful, imaginative masterpiece. like this!
