The middle three letters of the word “Earth”
Spell out the word “art”
This is fitting because when I create
The beauty of the world is where I start

The middle three letters of the word “believe”
Spell out the word “lie”
This is fitting because for all those who accede
There are an equal amount who deny

The middle three letters of the word “lonely”
Spell out the word “one”
This is fitting because I have felt isolated
Ever since you have been gone

The middle two letters of the word “life”
Spell out the word “if”
This is fitting because only when it’s too late
Will you wonder what you could’ve done with it
Let Us Live / Letters Live

yeah, I was looking at my friends photo and saw the word 'one' in 'lonely' then started to think about others too. Then had to try and make it into a poem lol

glad you liked it :)

Wow, what a wonderful poem :) in italian doesn't work (words are different) but i can understand perfectly what do you mean. The vocabulary, the order of the words, everything is so.. perfect.

I absolutely love this poem ^.^
The creativity you have showed us and opened our eyes onto the beauty and depths of those words is quite remarkable and extremely endearing.
Perfect length, I love your eloquence, the words seems to flow so freely.
I love the repetitiveness of "This is fitting..." it blends so perfectly, like waves caressing the shores endlessly.
Beautifully written, a true gem indeed ^.^
Thank you.
