If I could draw, I'd draw the world.
I'd draw abstract with a bunch of swirls.
I'd draw some trees and a small lake.
I'd draw the truth, as well as the fake.
I'd draw my friends and I'd draw me.
I'd draw the details of everything I see.
I'd draw the visions in my head.
I'd draw the dreams from my bed.
I'd let you see the world as I do.
I'd capture what's known by few.
There's just some things words can't show,
Some parts of my head you'll never know.
My drawings are so terribly bad.
Artistic ability, I wish I had.

Love it! I'm an artist and my style is abstract. Many times I can't always draw what I see in my head.

If I could write.
I'd have the greatest grammar ever.
Apparently i suck at grammar and thus here i am;
being stupid and favouriting such great comments.

...

This gave me the feels.

You always want what you don't have I suppose.

Yeah. Like how I really want to blend in with people; but then you think of how much fun it would be, for you to stand out in the crowd.

Abbigail are you serious right now. Stop. I only read like three of your poems and... no. Just no. This is all your fault. Now I won't be able to stop and now I just have another obsession and Abbi, why? Why must you make my list 8? Come on. You have to make these less awesome and amazing and flawless so I can go back to my normal life. Please I'm begging you. Wait. Just kidding. Keep writing. Just kidding, aha(: But really good job, darling(: I am hooked <33333 ~Liz

I'm sure you're not that bad at drawing. I'm down right terrible at it, and slow. I'm so OCD when drawing on my laptop I actually draw pixel by pixel so that it's neat XD

So am I XD Some people are just ment to be writers. But if you want to be a good drawer, I say drawer because I think of literature as an artform too, then practice is the key.

I'm pretty sure that my drawing would still be a scribble design.

I can totally agree with this. My art looks like a chimp got ahold of a pencil, that's why I stick to writing.

That's how I used to feel and still do but now I am working on my art. My dream is to be able to draw my world for others to see
To me, it seems artistic talent is more common than talent with words. You are very talented :D
