The poem won't come today.
What's to write about?
Sex? Love? Betrayal?
A thousand,
A million,
Countless overfed, overdone
Themes.

Write me a poem about originality for once.
Give me something new.
Give me haikus in iambic pentameter.
Write me something real,
Something beyond love.

Hell,
Write me a poem about trying.
About losing, winning,
What you gain.
Write me a poem about lying
In your bed, hearing snow,
Hearing rain.

Give me the little moments.
The thrill of acceleration when driving,
The thrill of your heartbeat when crying,
Because at least you,
In your humanity,
Can cry.

There are those who can't,
Who don't.

Write me the thrill of a teardrop,
In haiku,
In iambic pentameter.

Don't write another love poem.
Part of my year of poetry. More at [link]

Looks like the poem DID come today. I like this one. :)

On an unrelated note, is there a reason all of your recent poems are titled Nineteen? Maybe you explained it and I missed it. Just wondering.

Oh. I'm writing a poem a day for my entire nineteenth year of life. XD Thus.

AH. That makes sense.

I was FAIRLY certain it wasn't a Stephen King reference. But that's what I think of when I see 19. XD
