I write best
When I’m undressed,
When there’s no part of me compressed—

With glasses perched upon my nose
But no socks to cover my toes,
No more blouse buttoned too tight
Because words always fit just right,
No skirt zipped up to my waist,
My ideas just fall into place,
No belt or scarf to weigh me down,
Instead let memories wrap around.

When words can brush across my skin,
There’s no need for clothes to be in.

Nice! I liked it so much that I wished it was a bit longer, thought.

I wrote it after I had been thinking about writing it for a while. A couple stanzas got lost. Thanks though (:

I see. It's a good poem anyway. :)

Well this is annoying. I thought I'd already commented on this but apparently not. I really need to keep track of what I do. :P

Anyway, I really like this piece. I'm not usually all that keen on poetry with a constant rhyme scheme throughout, but here it really works. :D The last two lines just finish the poem off beautifully, and I love the entire piece's feeling of freedom. :)

I love the lines:

With glasses perched upon my nose
But no socks to cover my toes,


They just sound adorable. :heart:

Great work, keep writing!
