Deleted Verses

Deleted Verses

A Poem by Charlotte

My thoughts on whatever happened to all the verses I’ve deleted.

One day I hope to meet
All the verses that I delete.

We will go out and have some tea
And I’ll make clear that it was me.

I’d say, “Verses, I had this vision”,
They’d just question my decision.

Oh deleted verses, please stick around
In one of my poems you will be found.

Those are the best verses. Pure reveries, the things that naturally come out, and flow with the pen or whatever it is you're writing on. This is a fun and creative poem that you came up with, kind of ironic, the way you call them deleted verses, but are the ones you used in this poem. I remember i once wrote an argument between me and (supposedly) my imagination.
Overall it's a great and creative poem, keep it up!

i used write verse on napkins when i worked in the restaurant---and then go home and put them in books...
months later or years later i would find them...and realize i could use them for something.

probably better never to throw away anything we have written.

Creative and true to the task of writing. I love the playfulness of this poem. It is always a delight to read your work. Keep writing.

A writer is always faced with the necessary predicament of "killing their darlings".....but it doesn't mean those "darlings" have to die in vain. There's a time and a place for everything - even our deleted verses.

This is nicely written. Short and to the point! Well done! Much enjoyed.....and looking forward to reading the result(s) that those "deleted verses" ultimately come up with.
