An Intimidated Poet Poem by Eila Mahima Jaipaul

An Intimidated Poet

Rating: 4.1


I lost my pen, love
it ran out of ink.
all I have left
is a pencil with
a chewed off
eraser...
and the task
of writing
about you
with no mistakes.

Eila, this is nice work. It is short, compact, and makes its point without a lot of extra words. In a poem like this, the very brevity of it forces the reader to make more of the words, and here that process is greatly rewarded. Good work.

...which you have done, Eila. Like Mr Shaffer says, so much meaning with so few, delightful words. A gem.

how charming and lovely. One of the best non rhyming poems I have read in awhile. So simple and sweet.

A short yet brilliant poem.. The use of the pencil with 'chewed' eraser is beautiful...
