This is my confession:

I dreamt you took my hand and put it to your lips, kissing each fingertip
my only sigh was, 'Oh love me'

confession:

your eyes washed over me like a tsunami
swept away
i drown,
           darling,
                      drown.

confession:

he will never replace you

and I know the day is quickly approaching

remember we always said when we were older
and now here I am.

and though you said I was bad at painting
you called me beautiful and that was enough

Another, worse, confession:

today I picked up my phone
and decided I would send you a message
I would tell you everything in a 60-lettered
little box

but I know that it would be wrong
to face a fear
only
half
way


and I only hope when you look at me
you still see the girl you fell in love with

because, I confess:

I see everything in you
and your whirlpool eyes

and my last confession:

this is truth.
I know this is truth
Sang like the sweetest song
On the sweetest, most unkissed lips

Also, I give the Inked_Page club permission to post my poem. Because i'm in that club. And I submitted this poem. because it's the first poem I've written in the past, like, forever, that I haven't just torn up and thrown away, disgusted that those sorts of crazy, desperate, mushy thoughts came out of my head.

You know, you could make things simple for me.

What are you waiting for?

The formatting worked really well in this piece, especially in the second "confession" :) :+fav:

I'm glad you liked it. It's funny how I'll try and try to write something and get nothing, and then pieces like this will just come to me.

yea that happens..
And its usually the ones that come to
you that end up being the more awsome ones.
i completely understand, ive experienced this
several times.. Did you get to see my new one
on my songwriters account? i think you schedualed
your profile to watch that account of mine? lol..
That one was sort of a mixture.. Some of it came to
me and some of it i had to really sit down and think about it, almost painstakingly so.. Ever had a weird
one like that??

Oh I know exactly what you're talking about, a lot of my poems are that way. The idea or theme will be inspired and the rest is carefully thought out and arranged around it.

yes, exactly..
It always gets to me though. ill be sitting
doing something else entirely, and then ill
start thinking about a new poem or song im trying
to write, and ill have an epiphony. Ideas just come
to me VERY randomly. its the spur of the moment one's that are wonderful, its just that when i try to write them down, or record them, whatever.. And i get like, lets call it the "skeleton" the foundation of it down, then i start forgetting the details and further ideas, to take the concept further, to make it what i preceive to be alot more awsome, then what i do get down on to paper, or a recording.. Although that bit, is still indeed cool, you kind of kick yourself for not having awsome memory to get down exacly what euphoria was on your mind when it hit you..lol Then the "building" process consists of you and possibly a co-author sitting round, struggling to remember all the other fucking bits and details you've forgotten to finish the piece..lol!!

i also like to put the creative process on hold and
come back to it later. i usually find the "answer" or whatever piece was missing later on with it, when im not trying to press myself to get everything accomplished, right away. its usually the most simplest idea too, that you end up using after all the fuss.. its amazing how many elements you end up using to make the final product, that you didn't think you'd end up using along the way.. Kind of like putting the same point/answer into different words, like politicians do all of the time..lol
