Poem a day challenge...second last day!

Day 29 Prompt: Never...

Never be the same
Words fell from my mouth
I couldn't stop them
realities you didn't expect

I hadn't considered the
not one thought at all

never be the same
echoes in my head

thing is

I don't believe I would
alter a word even if it
changed your mind

sadly from a distance
I remain most tenderly

I submitted the poem with the crossed out lines in it. When I blogged the poem I realized I didn't like those two lines, but they connect the poem to the prompt.
~sigh~ :)


  1. I really like the crossed out lines. I think it adds to the poem.

    Fabulous as always!

  2. I thought you did it for effect!

  3. I liked the poem as it is.
    One more to go.

  4. my eye wanted to add "It will" at the head of the crossed out verse.

    I like this because no matter how much you would "take it back" there is never a guarantee that the hearer will give the words back.

  5. i'm gonna miss your poem... this is beautiful!
