A Poem by Moon's fairest daughter
"

Just a scribble

"
But of course,
there are verbs in this world. 
Terrifying, exhausting, excruciating,  exasperating
verbs.
And then there are
broken hearts.
There are chipped mugs,
and creaky doors,
heavy bills and
wasteful "evermores".
There are acids, bases and salts,
and an entire manual
 on how to disassemble drawers, 
there are spiteful words,
and that brings us 
back to the verbs--the damned verbs.

Author's Note

Just a scribble.
Inactivity is bliss, and I have every right to hate verbs. I know, i know, you are thinking that without them, no sentence would be complete--we can live on phrases, I suppose. :P

I actually saw many adverbs there too. Were you just doing your chemestry homework when writing that poem? :D
It seems you were trying to embrace and sumarize a little bit of this vast world we live in. It is interesting the fact that you can lost a little trying to think about the theme, but then you realize those little descriptions (love, daily life, nature, life experiences) are in fact verbs, the whole sense of your poem.
Nice poem, it made me laugh, verbs are so important in language as oxigen is so important for breathing. :)

Great use of thoughts. I liked how you gave the damned verbs credit for your bad place. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry.

You make me laugh again and again. Phrases still require being verbs, don't they? You have the greatest writing voice, soft and sophisticated, gentle and humorous. Brilliant concept and execution. :)

What about breaking down the third line & the last one? It'd sustain the alignment of the poem!

You should have added grammar too lol grammar and I don't get along too well. This made me laugh a little because its so true. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this and also the reality of life is highlighted here too; broken hearts, chipped mugs etc something meaningful and deep is etched in those words. Beautiful piece here.

Quite an interesting read, Verbs, who can live with them, or without them; they entail all, describe every facet of our lives, not to mention the written word. Well done.

Posted 3 Years Ago


Those darn verbs. Everything always goes back to a verb. Lol
Well done, I like this scribble. It's very creative. ^^

I like this. The listing gives it strength. It feels like a controlled random, if that's possible.
I like the inclusion of hurtful, descriptive, and dull (manuals) words. I enjoyed the broad spectrum.

Well penned.
