The Writer's Pen

Just a thought!

The Writer's Pen

Not sure who tells the better story,
The writer or the pen?
We come up with the initial idea,
But the pen usually fills in the blanks.
Thoughts race through our conscienceness,
Then the pen takes over, deciding what path to follow.
Places and characters emerge, not previously
Scripted at the inception of our thought process.
Our pen,"The real genious and co-author", cranks out embellishments
In fine detail, adding some color to your literary works.
Little unexpected twists and turns erupt out of nowhere,
Giving the reader a little surprise or wonder to the piece.
  My "Pen" is simply amazing as, I came up with the title
for this write....the rest just appeared on the paper!

The Other Side







pick up a pen, but why?


a subtle urge moves you,


words once trapped in darkness, scramble,


grappling and stirring around inside your head,


lying in your chest, bubbling and churning 


like a slow moving vortex of something,


but you don't know what it is,


and you write,


the words flow out like nothing before.


you are not a writer, why?


the days have been moving by slowly,


you chalked it up to exterior things...life, outlying changes,


and it feels good to put the pen down,


but a strange elusive spirit captures your attention,


and you write


and you write


and you can not stop, as you learn the other side 


to life,


to love,


to people,


to the side you were never told of.
