Nobody Hears Me Crying

I responded to my old friend and she wrote back, using none of the responses I imagined in the mental conversation I had with her while writing. In fact, it was a good response, one that made me glad I’d not shied away. Moving along now….

SOMETIMES THE LINE IN MY HEAD is not one I want to work with,
but there it is,
my lump of clay
and I’m not being given another until I make something of it.

Sometimes I feel
like nobody hears me crying.
There it is,
that’s the line,
and I’ve got plenty to work with
to develop that, but
like I said,
sometimes the line given
doesn’t appeal.

Does it count
if I just used it here,
or is that cheating?
Can I get a ruling on that?
