ATTENTION!!!!  THIS IS ONLY A FAILED ATTEMPT AT WRITING A POEM.  I WANTED TO SHARE HOW I TRY TO WRITE.  THIS IS, WORD FOR WORD, A  PAGE OUT OF MY NOTEBOOK.

 

You say you're lonely

-

I'm so glad you're still looking for love

-

Leave me alone, I want to die

The loneliness has swallowed me

-

Leave me alone, I'm lonely

-

I'm taking applications

For my next big surprise

-

My world is spinning crazily

-

If I give my heart to you

-

And then what if I trust you,

My dearest future one?

-

I keep digging tunnels

Into the echoes of my heart

I hear your whispers leaking

From where your loneliness is lost.
