The Eclectic Pen - Upon Buying Silver Ink

Words: 33

  I had always dreamed
Of becoming
A brilliant writer,
One who's pen
Spun silver spiderwebs
that no one dared
Brush away.

But my mind
Never saw
The pictures
That grow
Into beautiful words

And my pen
Wrote only
In blue ink.

That's probably the truest and most honest poem I have seen in a long time, I identify with it more than any other.
