Passion to Write

I love to write
thats just me
writing helps me
let everything inside be free
i have a wild imagination
and a sense of humor too
that sometimes get released
and make my poems untrue
but it doesnt matter if my poems are fake
theyre what you want them to be and what you rate
and to everyone now you know why i write
its the passion that turns me on and the pen and paper at sight.

    Hi London - I love New Orleans - I visted it PREFLUMEN (2003) it was awesome - hope to come again sometime! I love your poem - as you say writing is so so liberating. 'Lets everything iinside be free'. It enables us to use our imagination - in a poem we can be anyone and anything anywhere and we can do and say anything to whom and with whom we want - it releases our depest imaginations - awesome. We can be funny and as false as we like. When we get our hands on pen & paper (I always carry some with me 24/7) and the passion turns us on (possibly) like nothing else! Lovely poem which well deserves a TEN because its subject (composing POETRY) is so so drea to all our hearts. Thanks for commenting on my poems - I chose 'Passion to Write' because for me my greates relaese of passion is through my Poems. Each comment you (or anyone makes) is an Act of Love. I hope you like mey comment it is penned in Love. Love you in Poetry - JOHN.. (Report) Reply

    I feel the same way. I feel looking back on some of my poems that some of them are 'throw-away' or 'bad' but those same poems are the poems that people comment on telling me how it touched them in some way.

    Makes you humble, I suppose. (Report) Reply
