A Sea Words' Flood

Pen and Paper my best friends
Thank you for holding my thoughts and fears
Thank you for holding time all these years
Love and hatred I've expressed, you've still protected me in your fence

Your soothing lines asking. What's wrong?
Your quiet pale color saying. Loose your tongue!
You've held my tears, you've held my sighs
you've helped me sleep all these nights

My counselor, my lover, my friend
Over vanity, selfishness, love, integrity
you've never judge me when your lines I spend
To you also who drew my rhymes no other with your agility

I've manipulated you and yet a word you've not said
You've fought for my cause you've defeated time
You've believed in me, you've given your life, to death you ink you've bled
You've taken me by the hand to make sure I am fine

You've engraved my thoughts with your own blood
You've drawn for me on a sea words' flood

Poem of the Day

poet Tu Fu

Tonight at Fu-chou, this moon she watches
Alone in our room. And my little, far-off
Children, too young to understand what keeps me
Away, or even remember Chang'an. By now,
