Writing: Poetry, Quotes, and Other Words
"To me, the greatest pleasure of writing is not what it's about, but the inner music that words make."~Truman Capote
Write, express, record, compose,
Poetry, story, fiction, and prose,
Pens are sliding, keyboarding typing,
Writer's block, the authors griping,
Structure, character, emotion, thought,
Oh, to be published, and work bought,
Dreams and aspirations, neurons, pressures, and tears,
Broke but fulfilled, am I wasting all my years?
Silent musings desire to be printed,
Goals not yet realized, the future's only hinted.
"Writing is nothing more than a guided dream."~Jorge Luis Borges
A rhyming word, a rhythmic word,
A quiet word, that's quite absurd,
A sentence, flowing with great feeling,
A plot twist that sends the readers reeling,
A thoughtful phrase, full of brave insight,
A quip or poignant query that shows I'm bright,
A tragic, beautiful phrase that makes them cry,
A lover's romanced soliloquy, releasing female sighs,
A quotable quote, a playful phrase,
A novel that endures for days and days,
A reflection copied onto a mortal sheet,
A scribble inscribed to a writer's heartbeat.
