Carrying Weight

what do you do

when your words aren’t powerful enough-

not getting your message across,

i love you-

or when the mountain comes crashing down

when the gods say that is enough

and strike the planet barren

it is you that i want to stand next to

hold hands and have a final dance.

i just want you to know

that i want that dance

when the firey temple comes to collect

it’s you

it’s always been you that i wan-

that i need

when the rivers run high

and oxygen is a premium

will conserve it together.

when the darkness comes around

like it always does to play its will full tricks

i’ll never wander- i’ll be the light

and count the seconds until

we are warm in each others arms.

was that- strong enough?

  1. First off I want to say great blog! I had a quick question which
    I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself
    and clear your head prior to writing. I have had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting my
    thoughts out there. I truly do enjoy writing but it just
    seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips?

    1. Hello! Thank you for stopping by(:

      Well what I do might not work for everyone, sometimes poems take months to write and some take days. Ideas come in many different forms to an article of clothing or a politcal article. What I can say is just write without planning and without stopping for a few minutes a day. Trust me, it’ll be bad but there might be a line or a word in there you like that can trigger another thought. This is something I do from time to time when I feel stuck, basically free writing/journal. I hope this helps!
