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.
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.
