i’ve been wanting to write one
but my heart lacks stirring
i’ve been hoping to make one
but my thoughts are just elsewhere
i have an idea, i start jotting down
one word at a time, then a phrase,
a sentence, then a verse.
but it’s always left hanging
i try to continue
but my once stirred heart is already placid,
my running thoughts suddenly reversed
i lost its footsteps.
poems written from the heart
verses of overflowing thoughts and emotion –
it was once a living expression
what’s left is this poem in wrong stature and posture
tonight, i’m not in the mood to write poems
but i said tonight i will defy this mood and write one.
