Ink

A Poem by Lydia Jamison

Ink.
I love the way it glides
On the page beneath my pen,
The way it speaks
When there's nothing else
That you can say.

Ink.
It's always there for me,
Waiting at my side.
When inspiration sparks,
When something goes wrong,
When I've got something to say.
It can never judge me.

Ink.
It's always on my side.
Whether I lose or win,
Whether I'm right or wrong,
Whether I can or cannot.
It will help me clear my mind.

Ink.
There are some things it can't do.
It can't tell me who I am,
Or what I should decide.
It can't give me an opinion,
Or hold me when I'm alone.
But I've never stopped to mind.

Ink.
I love the way it curls
In my book on the lines.
It smells sweet and sultry,
Spills on the pages
Like some sort of art.

Ink.
It's a new start.
It's messing things up,
And making them right again.
It's the only road
To a storybook ending.

Ink.
It flows through my veins,
Almost like blood.
It allows my heart to beat,
For my emotions to rise.

Ink.
Hand and script .
It can say so much,
When in reality,
It says nothing at all.
