FREE WRITING

i want to bottle the stars or write sonnets to the sea
and humanity
and write the sun into the sky and write my heart
onto a page

but nothing comes
words fall and fade and backspace
backspace

poetry is hard

everything is too big
i cannot do justice to gaping injustice
i cannot write a call to arms for a battle i dont know how to fight
i cannot light the sky with a candle
i cannot explain my heart

nothing comes
and everything is too big or too small
a sentence or a word
or a novel i cannot write

i want to craft a speaker who would eloquently speak my unthought thoughts
i want to build clay men and let them take on the world

poetry is hard

and i am too small

and nothing comes

    I absolutely loved the first paragraph. The words put together made an amazing description! As did the rest of the poem! One of the best poems I have ever read.

    "write sonnets to the sea" is a striking phrase. Amazing beauty described in simple sentences. You have amazing talent and I love this piece so much I read it multiple times. Astounding work of art.

    This piece is so pretty and powerful; I really am just in awe of it. I love the way that you incorporated all of the lowercase styling and unique diction; the piece blew me away!
