Dear Ben, (Ben Hancock)



Not one person, could you offend
 What can I do to make amends?
 I'm sorry i was out of whack
 ANYTHING to get you back?!

 Your poems, they never failed to cheer
 This cold cold heart, you very dear
 A light's gone out without you here

 Your poetry has touched my heart
 A blend of shades, both light and dark
 Please don't sacrifice Your art

 A 'Fresh New Start' is what You need
 Just come back, I beg and plead
 (to Poetry)

 I'll never darken your doorstep again
