TITLE: More About Me

There is much I would like to say,
but at times the words come out
upside down or
backwards,
or maybe not at….

So I write.
At least when I write I can correct
my mistakes, begin again,
or forget it….
Whatever seems right,
and not have to wonder about a blundered
thought only partially expressed.

Even when I write there are times when
it amounts to nothing.
So I let it evaporate into the sky
where thoughts may take a different shape
among the clouds.

It's strange how sometimes the sky and I
seem to have so much in common.
Maybe it's because we have shared so much
over the years.

Well, here I am again,
waiting to see what shape this thought
will take,
as I wait for color to fill the sky….
But I think I need to paint it yellow,
because the sky has too many clouds
today.

We've all certainly experienced these moments and can identify with you! Writing often does seem like a "safer" way to communicate sometimes, huh? Nicely expressed thoughts.

A truly captivating and self-identifying disclosure!

I love the thought that our thoughts can take shape in form, color, etc. I thoroughly enjoyed this poem. I also admire those like you who can successfully write free style poetry.

One of the great features of FaithWriters is Jan's Writing Class which can be found by clicking on the Forums at the top of this page. Jan is currently looking at poetry construction and I'm sure you'll pick up one or two pointers.

I liked this. Something about it was peaceful as I read. I usually read more structure better, but I followed this well.
