oh honey. #poetry

Oh. My. God. I wrote a fucking poem!

I haven’t written a poem since October of last year. But I wrote one. I know, right? I can’t believe it myself.

do you remember
how perfect we were?
the first time you touched me
oh honey, I was sure

we had everything
it happened so fast
our love came easily
oh honey, you were my last

but maybe for you
the memories died
or only the bad endured
oh honey, I hurt inside

too good to be true
that tore us apart
of course I cried for you
oh honey, you broke my heart

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Hawaii where she could learn to surf. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.

    Hello, you need to pull your muse out and give her a good talking to. Tell her I am following now and want to read more. You shout at mine and I will shake yours and we will both get something fresh. P.s. this post was worth reading woke my muse up at least. X

    • I’m glad if this post had any positive impact on you. I have struggled to write for so long now… I used to write daily–as much as possible! I couldn’t want to do it. Now I find myself avoiding it because it’s so frustrating. I need a muse. I don’t have one…

        But you do. Believe me. Your Muse has become the problem she plays hide and seek. If you turn off your internal policeman and begin with the first line of a page of your favourite book. Go on give it a try. Close your eyes grab a book and open … you can look now. Write the first complete sentence you see on the top of the right-hand page. That is your beginning. Close it and repeat the process but the last sentence of the ‘chapter’ you open at. Write it down as your closing sentence. Pour out the unbridled words between the first and last, no editing until the end. I would keep it to a predetermined length say no less that 100 no more than 300 words. Your muse will jump in and flow will come. It will take a pace, length and genre of its own. And the next day take out the unnecessary words spell and grammar check, then read your story aloud. Now you can post. What you have done is burned out your muse, by insisting a post each day is the only way … start with choosing a day a week only one. Announce on a platform of your choice.the day and stick to it. You will have completed a flash fiction. A tiny tale with a beginning a middle and an end. This exercise works and you can use it with poetry too first word last word and fill in the middle. … you are too good to not give it a go. 😘🙃😀 have fun you got this.

        • I can try… but right now, I want to get through the April A-to-Z challenge. That’s daily. I guess I’ll see how that goes.

          As far as everything else… I don’t know.

          I don’t have any fiction in me anymore. I had some… I wrote it all… and now there’s nothing left. I’m not sure about poetry. I had a period where I thought I was writing some really good poetry, but that was a long time ago. Two or three years ago. I think I’ve lost that, too. I’m just not sure I’m cut out for writing anymore.

          It’s everything else in my life. It’s draining me to the point where I can’t do much of anything.

          I’m sorry… that was a real downer. This is the tone I hate. But I guess it’s just where I am…
