Sandscript – A Poem

This poem was (inspired by / ripped off from) Susan Daniels Poem Here. As Oscar Wilde says, talent creates but genius steals!


No matter how deeply I scribe
The words are eaten by the tide

If I could fill them
With the life behind
The memories and scars

Use a life-pen
To empty my mind
Sluice my heart

Into the letters born to die
What would I write

I would write hope and watch it fade
I would write sorrow to be taken away
I would write love and wave it goodbye
I would write hate to see its demise

I would mourn joy and lust and pleasure
that they cannot last
I would know fear and pain and hunger
that this too shall pass

But what if I wrote to stay
Then what would I say

Only your name

      1. And it is a wonderful thing–I love the community of writers I am privileged to know as a result.

      1. I went from yours to hers, and it was lovely! The two poems are kin, both rich in meaning, but very different.

You can tell me anything (yes, even that!)
