I Don't Know

The bewildered tip of my pen hovered over the blank thirsty pages… 
I thought expressing feelings is as magnificent as the sight of the sun’s birth 
from the horizon’s womb...
Or as miraculous as a squeamish bizarre caterpillar's transformation 
into an elegant butterfly… 

Such a transcending experience still lingers within the facets of my subconscious…
As I limp through the days under the weight my tumescent thoughts… 
With my weary pen, I converse the endless possibilities of a phrase, a word, a feeling… 
How few ordinary words from countless pens became etched in history…

I’m hovering with my pen wondering about how to write and what to write… 
Should I write about what was in the past; a past I long to forget…
Or about a present; a present battle I still haven’t won…
Or about a future; nameless, precarious yet an exciting adventure… 
Should I give birth to what’s swelling inside or consider abortion… 

My pen is choking…it’s time to end the turmoil and hesitation… 
I’ll just press down the tip of my black pen on white paper…
And wait for a reaction… 

Isn't that how it works anyway?

    DN such a clever piece. I love this. It is true. I pray before I write wanting God's favor and wisdom. I don't know if I'm actually knowing what next poem will run through my mind but I can surely relate to this clever piece. There is a thing about intelligent woman that I favor and I feel that "thing" with you. Can't Waite to read the rest. What is your first name ?Michael Torres

    In my opinion, that's exactly how it works, D.N. I'm no authority, but, after nearly 50 years of wtiting stuff, I have evolved to putting down a bunch of thoughts and letting them develop. I'll write ten to get just one, maybe none. Easy to tell, you are wonderfully articulate and eager to put down feelings, ideas in the best possible way. Just write. You'll, without doubt, get some winners. Love, daver

    I don't know either. Maybe for you as it seems to work well. I suppose it is different for all of us. I like what you created here, so I would keep it up. Love, Shar
