    After a breakfast of bacon and
    scrambled emotions on toast
    we are put to work

    Some write letters home
    the heart's nib bled for ink
    to make the verse

    Others sweep the yards
    of littered minds and desolate souls
    but I won't complain...
    (at least with poetry I don't have to
    remember any last names)

    Wow, so much emotion in just eleven lines? I particularly loved the lines
    "the heart's nib bled for ink to make the verse". Good stuff. I look forward to reading more from you.

    Totally loved this....love the contemporary feel, as Kitten pointed out, the cunning playful use of vocab, and the simplicity. Wow!

    Thankyou people :) I can hardly type, my fingers are shaking so much from the cold...blooding heating's broken in this room! I liked this poem, which was unusual because I don't normally have much time for my own stuff once it's written...I'm happy you can all find something in the words, they mean a lot to me.

    Much Love XxX

    Cheers my darling...and don't you think emotions are just like eggs? They're tricky little buggers, you try to get them whole but you always end up with, um, jagged little bits of eggshell in them? Ignore me, I'm in the weirdest mood possible I think! X
