How To Be A Poet 101

February 24, 2021


write the words.

simple, isn’t it?

no – don’t lie to me.

write the words

stuck in your belly,

clogged in your chest and your throat.

write the words

scratching at the insides

of your lips.

write the words that mean something to you,

and to her and to him,

and to them.
My first post here :) I first wrote this little one when writer's block hit me square in the gut a few months ago. It's good to go back and understand what writing means to you, and I'm slowly walking up that path again.

    I love this! Especially the lines where about the words:
    "write the words

    stuck in your belly,

    clogged in your chest and your throat. " - So unfeigned and realistic! Equally beautiful!

    "write the words

    scratching at the insides

    of your lips." - Simply lovely! <3
