The message

This is something I bet most people relate to.......

It seemed such an important message
I felt the need to write
even though it was getting
very late into the night
and I felt pretty tired
but it was in response to an enquiry
or someone was feeling down
or something that I really wanted to share
I wrote it oh so carefully
spend so long so it made sense
even though I’m exhausted
this really is intense
re-read, edit, re-write, re-read
but is still not quite what I’m trying to say
delete, rewrite, reword, rephrase
oh its sounding better
now what is that word I need
that will make it perfect and complete
Oh Dam
what happened
I somehow hit delete :shock:

I write a message quickly because
I’d decided to
but it’s not nearly so nice as what I wanted to
so next time you read my message
and it doesn’t sound quite right
assume that I was trying
but it just wasn’t my best night

loved your poem, even if I was wide awake I couldn't come up with that. You should find yourself a publisher. :)
