I sat down to write a poem
Surely it couldn’t be that hard
To stitch words together In rhyme and iambic pentameter
My fingers spun across the keys
And words spilled out in twos and threes
My first efforts didn’t feel like poetry
More like rhyming words trying to tell a story
Dozens of lines discarded
Why did the words elude me?
Are they hidden there, in some unknown shadow of my mind
Running away, burrowing deep, when I turn a corner?
Was I not good enough?
Do I need to find a way to light a spark?
Or maybe poetry isn’t something you force into the light
Maybe poetry only comes to us in the dark

roytang.net is a personal site, an E/N site, and kind of a commonplace book; I post about a random assortment of topics that interest me including software development, Magic the Gathering, pop culture, gaming, and tech life. This site is perpetually under renovation.
