Pencil me white
For the charcoal erased
Might leave the page blank
But the creases
Highly present
A colorless world
Emotions burning
On a coveted canvas

Pencil me white
Mend me whole
Burned to ashes
All is gray
In the cracks.

    Love this. Though not exactly the same, as it began it reminded me slightly of the lyrics to My Colouring Book by your fellow Swede Agnetha.

    Something about the rhythm of this poem really appeals to me. Nice!
