It's a Steal ...

Water_witch-2by Abigael07 Nov 2013

Forgive me I'm a creative ,
a compulsive kleptomaniac of words,
I may steal your thunder.

Mine's a voracious hunger
I love the sound of words like voracious,
velvet and capricious .

I will not steal piecemeal
word for word - or copy things only to deface;
but how I love to deal

in passion and zeal.
Impulsively my mind is tuned to improve
on any communication.

A steal - a grab to smash,
as long as I make it mine - a re-hash is fine,
a literary take-away .

A thief of nuggets , my trick,
is choose with care what to waste - and pick ,
with impeccable good taste.
