Scrawl

Scrawl

A Poem by E. L. Nussam
"

I'm in love with a poet.

"

i once met a girl

who had more words than she knew

what to do with; they spilled out,

a waterfall of consciousness,

onto any leaf of paper

her slender fingers could reach,

scrawled in the frantic hand

of a dreamer imprisoned

 

by reality.

 

and reading her words

was like looking into the eye of a

storm; the centre of something

turbulent, something

breath taking

something i would never truly

 

understand

 

but i would love

until my heart was empty
