A Writer’s Nightmare

A Writer’s Nightmare


How would I begin to build this labyrinth?

One hidden within pages and words.

One that would have the reader enchanted.

Lost in reverie.

While working or walking.

How would I begin to lay the bricks of suspense?

Grow the flowers of romance?

Paint the blood of tragedy?

The fitful laughter of comedy?

Would this work?

Should I strike that out?

Pouring rain falls out of the lines,

Paved streets constructed in a page.

Fortunes change.

Creatures come to life.

Would they be lost in the world I create?

Would they lose the bound pages or hold it dear?

How would I?

How should I?

How can I let imagination dream of reality?

These thoughts,

Day and night.

Taunt, tease.

Tug, pull.

My work shall now begin!

    Very very beautiful. Consider removing the last line though ot removing the exclamation mark. Exclamation marks indicate a rise in volume- a shout. This poem is solemn and dignified. Just my thoughts
