Pen In Hand

I sit down to write
but the words smear
line after line
and I fall
off
the
page
leaving
ink
in
blotches
and
wavering
lines
as
all
of
my
thoughts
turn
to
the
note
you
left
.

Hello good friend. I have found that some things should just be left unanswered.
Best to you, Jo

Only you could write so few simple words and have them pack such a wallop. My hat is always off to you, my friend. ~L

Thanks everyone for the replies.  One note though; the title is supposed to be "Fall Off The Page" - I forgot to change it on PIP before posting it.


again, thanks for your reads and comments.

This stings a little bit... your format and choice if words made it easy to feel.
