ink and chalk



Writing on the wall of life
With an ink-filled fountain pen
Permanently making my mark
Because I have never really liked
The leaded scratchings of pencils

That can easily be erased. 

But what about the black and white 
Chalkboard that leaves a film of dust?
Each stroke changing the scene
Every erasure never quite entire

Give me paper and pen 
And hand me a chalkboard too
To write of things of forever
Within the everyday moments with you.

  1. I like the line "Every erasure never quite entire." Even the white board shows a build up of messages left behind.
