words put together

i type words and sentences
i type and
type away until
i hit the backspace key once again because
what if?

what if you think i’m crazy
what if I embarrass myself
what if it is a mistake

i wonder if you’re the mistake
worth making though or
if this will be another one on the list
of loves unrequited

i wonder and wander through
the possibilities in my mindspace
again and again
like a love sick nimwit

this
whatever this even is;
far from practical
not realistic and yet every time we
communicate i have to hold back
my words to
keep them from spilling uncontrollably

the words you say
and those i mean to say will
never agree
never have the same meaning
never collide and create
something great

in the end I know this
will never see the light of day
as all the other times
went by without leaving a trace

    Willie, you’re a poet :O :O :O I am in awe!

    • Wilhelmina Upton

      Nah, one poem doesn’t a poet make. Glad you liked it, I’m rather fond of it myself if I am honest.

      • cupitonians

        Shhh, to have a way with words like this, you are a poet. Not that crappy kind whose grave we visited in Edinburgh!

        • Wilhelmina Upton

          Which crappy poets grave did we visit? I don’t remember him right now.

          • cupitonians

            It might have been a McGonagall? The worst poet in the world?

          • Wilhelmina Upton

            Ha, okay, I don’t even remember that or know him which makes me feel a bit bad. I should probably remember this.

          • cupitonians

            It was when we entered and on the wall towards the extreme right, right before the gate through which you could see the inspiration for Hogwarts.

          • Wilhelmina Upton

            Ah, okay, I forgot about it then.

            Sidenote, when I got this comment as an email I was a bit confused because I thought you had just started writing a poem of your own.

          • cupitonians

            Hahaha. I wouldnt have even thought of that angle! Hilarious!

          • Wilhelmina Upton

            It was completely out of context for me, except for that it was acomment on this post when I read it :D
