Chalkboard Me

2 04 2012

This is the first of a long line of therapeutic poems. Enjoy!

     Chalkboard me

Wiped away

Chalkboard me

Defined with clay

Chalkboard me

Words, pictures

And sloppy diagrams

Attempt to express

Who I really am

Sometimes in color

But mostly white

Chalkboard me

Not always coherent

With random scribbles

One dimensional

An attempt at understanding

Chalkboard me

Should be organized

Chalkboard me

Isn’t easy on the eyes

Chalkboard me

Is obsolete and peeling

Needs a new face

But Chalkboard me

Refuses to become dry erase

Good to see you that you’re back Andrea! Hopefully you didn’t get too stressed out. But you’re right, it’s all about writing from the heart 🙂

Thanks!! I’m old fashioned and there is something impersonal and intimidating about dry erase boards…..
