Rattling

 

 

Have you ever had a poem,

Rattling round your head?

The moment that you write it down,

Damn! That puppy’s dead!

 

You hear the words internally,

The rhyming is so fine.

But when it’s on the paper,

It’s just a bloody crime!

 

My silly brain is addled

I can’t forget your face.

Or am I just remembering

Another in your place?

 

Life is such a crazy thing,

We live from day to day.

Writing is really what I do

For me to have my say!

 

Now I wrestle with my words.

I’ll make that poem work!

If I don’t then I’ll just say:

It’s just a silly quirk!

    Isn’t it weird how a poem, or anything for that matter, sounds so great in our heads, but when we commit it to paper we can’t get it in the trash can fast enough?

    I don’t know how this poem sounded in your head, but it reads just fine!

    Like your sketch.
