Posted in Blogging Experiences, I'm No Poet but I write Poems

When You Don’t Feel Like Writing, but The Words Keep Flowing. ( A Writer’s Quandary)

Been staring on this blank page for a while now.

Written one word, two words… oh, to express I don’t know how.

I have something in mind I wanted to share,

I just can’t find the exact words to start the tale.

My imaginary friends are not visiting me.

I don’t know why, could it be because they are busy?

Oh, I think I understand,

not everytime we have the upper hand.

These words keep flowing,

I don’t really know where they’re coming.

My imaginary friends, they’re what I have waited,

but right now I think, my time isn’t wasted.

A friend once told me,

“the world may fall apart, but you will write anyway”

Because I’m a writer,

and this is my quandary.

P.S   Hello, there! This is my first attempt into poetry. I’m not sure if I hit the right rules. If you have any suggestions, I’m very open to it. What do you think?

Hi, there!.. :) I'm Emz, a frustrated writer/blogger from a far-flung place of Cebu, Philippines. I love reading and writing, and if there's two things I can't live without, it would be my pen and my notebook. I have the love for food and travel. I am optimistic and I am a dreamer. Thus, Side by Side is more like me. Here are tidbits of life, inspiration, places, people and myself. Welcome to Side by Side! Thank you for dropping by. :)

  1. The beautiful thing about poetry is that are no rules. It is a story presented in a creative manner that expresses the thoughts and innermost feelings of the person writing it! I have written hundreds of poems and short stories that I call story poems. Some sound clever and witty and even rhyme in rhythm and time. But it is all from the heart and speaks of my emotion or condition at the moment.

    If you write it, they will read. 🙂 (Sorry. A wee twist on words — If you build it, they will come — from the movie “Field of Dreams”.)

    1. 🙂 wow! That’s inspiring, Liz. I think there will be more of this coming soon. I’m enjoying it, and i feel good about it, too.
      It’s funny how I thought of expressing your emotions in a poem is so corny. But here I am, taking steps into poetry.
      Thank you. 🙂
