    CrossWords
    Words, vertically
    and horizontally placed
    some misplaced
    some, posted in haste
    others postal then erased
    still others interlaced
    Been a while since we've crossed...
    words
    Nowadays one verse is enuf
    Used to salivate for seconds and thirds
    words were dripping out every orifice
    leaking out unexpectedly
    It's not that my quill has
    rejected me...

    Now, let's see,
    1 across, a five letter word
    meaning intersect or irate
    C-R-O-S-S
    Cross

    ...nor is it that my pen's on empty
    The poet's tree
    still blooms in my mind
    Just like "CrossWords"
    had that title in my head months ago
    but back then, either rainbows and birds
    would have perfumed and permeated the flow
    or..."CrossWords" would have been cross indeed
    just bursting with pissy, puss filled letters, just
    itching to pop and bleed
    Today
    I decided that
    wordplay
    would be much more fun
    sitting here, actually admiring the way
    all the words and phrases crisscross and run

    2 down, utterances or speech, five letters...
    W-O-R-D-S

    Cross

    w
    o
    r
    d
    s

    Words, vertically
    and horizontally placed
    some misplaced
    some, posted in haste
    others, postal then erased
    still others, interlaced
    Been a while since we've crossed...
    words
    Hasn't it?
    Now, back to my puzzle...

    Hey Watz, I also loved your play of words. For me this piece represented life, and all the relationships I've had in life with different people. Things change so quickly but you can always pick up the pen an fill in the crosswords. Loved your flow, look likes the girl is back!!!!!!!!!!
