Words to Paper


This is where I am supposed to write about anything

About something that says nothing


I feel the pen in my hand

It just taps the desk


This is where the pen tip should be touching paper

The ink should be gliding across the page


Letters should be forming words

From my thoughtÕs ideas should be written


Thoughts building the ideas 

That say something about nothing


This is where poetry forms

When those nothing thoughts become something


When the pen stops tapping

When the letters form words


When the words start to say something

Rather than nothing


Thoughts on paper
