Kleptomaniac

I confess to living my life

Lifted from pop songs, poets, fools

Taking every chance I get

Wandering where I choose

Secreting in my pocket

Those most precious of jewels

Stolen seconds of Time

To be wasted with you

    1. It was interesting to see this prompt today because when the floral prompt came in every line of that poem was lifted from “The Language of Flowers”, so I had to scramble on this…love NaPoWriMo…(ish).
