Written in Pencil

Unpublished pieces

I wish it hadn't been 
Written in pencil. 
Words that quickly 
Slipped from my grip. 
Words that I have forgotten. 
Words erasable, 
 erased from mind. 

I wish this was written in pencil. 
This numbing tingle, 
Pain that paralyzes . 
Leaving one to wish 
Nothing, a tender eraser 
Would swipe me from being 
For I was just a sketch 
Drawn wrong, 
In pencil
