Okay so i have two short poems, both of which i felt were visually as important as the words contained within them. The poems vary a bit from page to computer text, but the trial offs and such that are achieved with handwritten stuff are sometimes lost in a typed up version. As someone who hand-writes most of their work, i suppose i just have more connection, or find it easier to write that way? I’ll do several drafts on paper, then edit as I type up and then before publishing, usually. The reason these are limited in scribbling outs and annotations is they have traveled from scrap of paper to drawing pad to notepad, and as you can see with the line ‘for a second’ in Enough still prone to change. I was tempted to spread that over three lines, and one version of this had 4 boxes of text before the big ‘Enough is Enough’ at the end. I’m not sure which i prefer, but i like the haphazardness of this version.
The winds whisper,
Willing me to wake.
Words that call me
To times long gone,
By all but me
His face, when I left,
To wander, aimlessly,
why it stopped you,
In the end.
Stopped being just another day.
That one act,
So like the others,
That made you stop,
for a second,
And say –
Enough is Enough.
I’m putting all this up for freeeeeee, for the love of writing and your enjoyment, and if you would like to use it for your own purposes that would be awesome. However, it’s my writing, and I must ask you to ask me first, and credit me (obviously). Also, if you do I’d really love to see/hear/watch it!
If you’d like to support me, on a monthly basis, then i’d love you forever, and feel free to sign up for my patreon here – i’ll link the blog to here whenever I post something new, as well as a few extra snippets just for patrons (so extracts of WIP larger projects etc)
If you would also like to help me keep putting things up for free, and support my writing but would rather not do monthly donations, my paypal is:
