Letter D

Okay today's post is less of a poem and more like some words forming complete sentences! :)  I joined a group for insecure writers so thought I would write a little about that.  A dream that I have held close to my heart is to be a writer.  However this is a dream that has caused me a lot of turmoil.  I live in fear of my own dream.  I avoid it and have sabotaged it more times than I like to count.  I have made very rash decisions in regards to writing, like deleting all of my writer friends on Facebook and Twitter and deleting my old blog.  All of this came out of a very dark place that my dream was not able to enter. So with all of that said, I would still like to be a writer minus the self sabotage. I know there is a first step here somewhere and life truly is too short to not go for what you want.

In my dark world of non-reality
words swirl and spin
mine for the taking
glowing white words
wanting to become real
a voice speaks them aloud
remember when your world becomes light


  1. What nice words. I tend to have some dark spells too, but the trick is to believe in your writing and sticking to it no matter how tough things get. I know you have the talent to make this work. There are many aspiring writers out there, like myself, that would not mind giving you a bit of support, so hang on in there.

  2. Nice! I love the image of words becoming real.

  3. You're such a good writer!! This reads like a spell to me. Words have the most meaning. Imagine and write.

  4. I love the last line of this poem.

    Look forward to your challenge run…

  5. I hope you never get to that 'dark place' again. Self-doubt is a killer, but we, your fellow writers, are here for you should it ever strike again. Just talk to us. We have all been there to greater or lesser degrees.

  6. Thank you all for the kind words and support.
