Status: Finished  |  Genre: Poetry  |  House: Booksie Classic

Just a poem about a poet, starting the process.

Some reached inside where they like to hide
And they open the drapes to let light in;
It is an opening thought but rendered, not,
A final solution on where to begin.

But that is just fine for a beginning line,
The next line will follow and will fall into place.
Once they start flowing no one is knowing
How the ending will try to make it's case.

It is the poets first thought that ends with a dot,
A question, a comma, or a quotation mark,
Or it may go on 'til the coming of dawn;
Not a peace of cake, but a walk in the park.

Good poem, I can relate to a lot of the lines/feelings, especially this one: "once they start flowing, no one is knowing, how the ending will try to make it's case." love writing poems
