I want to Write something Beautiful


I want to write something beautiful

I want to write something fine

I want to write something lovely

Something that I can call mine


I want to caress your emotions

I want to touch your heart

I want to influence your feelings

Like a lovely work of art


I want my words to flow smoothly

I want them to go down with ease

I want my words to be fluid

To show my desire to please


I want you to read what’s important

I want you to see what is true

I want you to understand pure love

It’s why I do what I do


I know my prose is not perfect

My poetry falls short of my goal

I know that my writing needs practice

But I still hope it touches your soul

April, you are doing just fine in the poetry department. What a light and lyrical verse. It's warmed my heart, and it is so telling about what motivates us writers. You've got my vote. Regards, snakeslane

I could skip a heartbeat, and I would survive,

I could be in a car crash, and still be alive.

The clouds could fall out of the sky,

The oceans could disappear, and all turn ..........
