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 Mahima Jaipaul

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...

I really like this one. Finding the right words does often feel impossible. How to capture somebody that means so much on paper?

Oooohhhhh! that's a dodgy situation there Eila, I think breadcrumbs are supposed to work quite well as an eraser, though I've never tried it. Clever write indeed. Love Ernestine XXX
