Poetry and Verses

By @TEFlash


This is a notebook full of potential. I love the way the pages are waiting pristeenly to crinkle with the ink and graphite that shall grace it these coming months, and I like the cover I drew yesterday displaying who I think I’d rather be.

This notebook will eat up every word I scratch down in scribbles and messy calligraphy. There are echoes of sentences and ideas from the future that change with every flick of this mechanical pencil, and I think that’s grand.

This notebook tells me to write, even through my muse has been smoking and burning all summer, so I haven’t stopped and look here I am, trying to ignore this cold, cold room and the soft conversations behind me, writing these words down because, simply put, I love stories.

I think this notebook will keep me from becoming bored. Thank you paper, thank you ink, thank you sentient thought.
