“Let Me Just Write”

Poet

 

 

 

 

 

I shall sooner die
than not write. I must
write something, anything,
else I will wilt. Let it be

a word — “breath”, say,
or “crystal”. Or let it be
a phrase — “The poem
bubbled out of the page

and enveloped her…”
Or let it be an echo
of a dream or the fluttering
of a longing which a few

paragraphs can try to paint.
It may not make sense,
and no eye may ever see
it, but let me just write.
