    Hello Carl,

    The pen tells a beautiful story,
    The ink splashes the emotional blood,
    The page is your generous world,
    The song is your heart's melody!

    Beautiful! 10+

    And the heart is a lovely lovely poet who can sing as well, a beautiful write. (Report)Reply

    Thanks for the kind words. I do play music, but you would not want to hear me sing. Better for me to use a pen and not a microphone (lol) . Have a good day.

    Thanks for taking the time to read this poem. At times a poem or lyric can do a better job of expressing a feeling than tripping over words when talking.

    Thanks for the comment and I am happy you liked the piece. Since I started writing in '85, I have found it easier and more truthful to express myself through writing poems and lyrics; so at times the ink does feel like it is a part of me.

    Thanks. Sometimes fewer words will say more than a full page.
