Right Now

Lamp flickers on,
someone speaks downstairs,
hinges creak.

It is gray outside.

I saw you because you commented on my blog. :)

This poem is really lovely.

Your writing is really really good...it's hard to believe that you're eleven. Wow.

I also feel the need to laugh at your last line, even though it is lovely.
