It's Not Poetry

When syllables form on my tongue,pass my lips,and roll over my ears it may sound like poetry,
It's not.It's me rearranged in puzzle,hidden by verse to blur my face.

When letters roll across the page,morph into words,and whisper a secret it may sound like poetry,
It's not.It's last week's fight,yesterday's scab,and today's scar.

When sentences build paragraphs and paragraphs paint stories it may sound like poetry,
It's not poetry.It's everything I can't say.

The Top Ten

Okay,I read some really fantastic blogs but I could only pick ten.Why?Because if I picked eleven or say fifteen it would completely defeat the purpose of calling my monthly list The Top Ten,and I'm rather fond of the title The Top Ten.Anyway,if you didn't make the list don't worry,until you do you're still in the running for any of the following Top Ten lists.So,with that in mind here are my top blogs for this month:

There's my list,if you made it congrats,if not there's always next time just keep writing.

You Close Your Eyes and I'll Close Mine

If you walk away I'll follow your lead,
You surf,I ski

If you say you don't hear it I'll cover my ears,
We'll let the alarms blare until they fade with the years

If you claim not to see it I'll slip on a blindfold,
You say the sun's out,I won't wonder why it's cold

If you close your eyes I'll close mine,
But only if our problems don't intertwine
