Bad Poetry -- Just For You

Dear Bloggy Friends,

I've written songs for you
Comments galore
I spilled about my writing origins
And much, much more

Holy crap, I'm writing poetry
Something I swore I never did
See? That's how wicked amazing you guys are
I'll do whatever you bid

I love living the impossible
I love how you endure my rants
I love hearing your innermost thoughts
Hey, I even like your pants

Thanks for clicking over here
Thanks for being my fabulous friends
Thanks for leaving your comments
I hope this journey never ends


By the way, I've been having brainwave after brainwave for my newsletter. And at the risk of sounding snooty, I think it's gonna rawk the house! Sign up if you haven't yet!

If I can write lyrics for my novel, so can you. Great stuff! And you told me you couldn't write poetry.

Have a great weekend!

Good job! I never realized how hard it was to write poetry until I tried it once (once being the key word). : )

Have a great weekend!

How'd you know what I was wearing?

Signing up for your newsletter now--but only if you promise more poetry. I need a good chuckle every now and again : )

Kimberly, you wouldn't believe how long it took me to write that last night.

Very cute.

Kasie West said...

Aw, Elana, I didn't know how you felt about me until you put it in a poem (that's the only way I can truly comprehend people's feelings). Thanks. :) But really, it was cute.

Jemi Fraser said...

Fun poetry?! Who woulda thunk it? :)

Little Ms J said...

I start every single poem with Roses are Red Violets are Blue, so I think you're pretty awesome.

And smart too.

See, I just can't help myself.

For someone who 'doesn't do poetry' you have done very well...oh and I'm glad you like my pants ;0)

Your new look is you in a nutshell. The poetry rocks, as do you. And this journey will never end. It can only get better.
