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

Written
