Without You

Jaibala/ June 20, 2014/ Poetry/ 4 comments

Words don’t come, Thoughts just scream,

Compliments, Critiques don’t mean a thing,

Ideas evaporate like water to steam,

I put pen to paper, but can’t seem to think,


The opinions don’t matter as much as yours,

Cause only you know where the words come from,

The truth behind the story, the pondering for hours,

But without your push the inspiration’s just gone,


Your belief makes me write, your faith makes me sound,

Your incessant prodding gives me stories new,

The only thing that matters is not to let you down,

There is just no writing without you.
