    Only you can write cliches about cliches and make it..not cliche. ;)

    "a new author to fill in your heart and
    spill color onto the black & white."

    Love the imagery here.. though I personally love the vintage black & white. ;) This poem had an entirely different feel than your normal stuff. I really enjoyed the soft/subtle rhyme. I don't know if that was intended, but it left a soft cadence to the poem. Love, love.

      Yes, Britt! Thank you for getting it. Writing cliches about cliches. Love turns us all into saps.

    Love this too, and the point Britt made about writing about cliches without it being a cliche. The whole concept and idea of him having a new book and author, yet that reminder in the end to not forget who wrote you both first.

    Enjoyed reading this!
