Today, if I didn’t write a poem
would you notice?
Would you say to a friend,
‘Tell you what…’
and describe to them
the feelings inside?
If I didn’t write a poem, today,
would you care?
Would you check your media closely,
to see if you’d missed me there?
If I didn’t, today, write a poem,
would I feel okay?
And even if I had
nothing to say,
shouldn’t I still write a poem,
If I didn’t write that poem today,
would ‘you’ still have something to say,
that you could put in a poem
just to fill that gap?
Is that a ‘yes’ I hear you say?
