I have worked hard to polish this but am not sure if it is still ready to be called a final piece. though alot of the errors in the poem are dilberate if you see anything that still needs to be corrected please point it out. any help or advice now will do for me!

slightly tweaked by chell's recommendation. thanks!

Between The Lines

[I am a torn page from a spiral notebook;
[Jagged edges
[And sloppy.

I am an abbreviation, a mispeling, an error
A @!*# curse in symbols.

I am the silent "k" in known
And the "f" in phenomenon;
A swift erasure, lost forever,
Question mark me?
I am the implied,
The innuendo too obscure to be understood,
The lengthy epigram.

I am the etc., what's next?

nothing maybe…

A paradox, a pseudonym,
A synonym for mistake.
A coffee stain,
A curled corner that refuses to straighten.
I am the ink that bleeds through,
or the ink that fades

Find… me… between… words,
the s p a c e s, the gaps , the emptiness.
I am a fold,
And folded again.

The pause

after a period.
The exasperated gasp-
After a run on sentence,
Crumble me and watch
Crease veins stretch over me.

I am the passage written when you were blue.
Come back to me and wonder,
"How could I have written this?"

T/e/a/r and rip me!
I will flutter in pieces somewhere sad,
Because I am the message that is forgotten.

  this is quite ingenious...

the language well-played---the pause after the period...the forgotten silent letter...

but if you read between the lines...i am more important than you think...and i will be remembered...

maybe by that semi-colon...


can't suggest changes..i like this as is...

definitely my amusement for the day!

thank i shall go teach my English composition class with a slight smile.

Great write, going to a favorites, makes you think, liked the idea behind it, so what are you then?, the space, the blankness of purpose, or the energy behind the write or the actual words or meaning.

Kind regards

  Wow!! excellent job on this. It has so much feeling and it is taken into a new view. I love how you used writing to display your feelings. I was also impressed with how many usages you could find inwritting to convey your meaning. This was amazing i initialy thought this was going to be just some normal type of writting fromthe title and was caught off gaurd at how well you used the english language, well written languge to convey meaning in a new way. Great work on this!

  This could be a poem about my life. I usually feel like the " 'f' in phenomenon" myself. This is definately going in my favorites.

  I think I won't be able to tell you something that others havent said allready,
I, too, love how you played with punctuation, spaces.. etc.
Like the action that goes with the words.
I must say t that I think jetstream candy had a nice idea
