“Fear The Heart” (a quick, free written poem)

What I find to be a major roadblock happens to be something I’m inevitably attached too. Brains can be such jerks sometimes and it keeps me from finding my flow. I decided to try something new and do a quick free write and write completely blind. Although I did do some editing at the end to fix my terrible spelling, I left the punctuation out since that was not what I added during the free write.

This experience made me feel a bit like Gertrude Stein, a poet who wrote many of her poems as a spontaneous explosion of words that met paper. It was interesting to see the kind of fluidity I conjured up from this style of writing, and even more so the ideas that blossomed out of an empty mind.

Definitely going to be something I’ll try again.

“Fear The Heart”

Fear the heart and make it sway

Bring the light at the night of day

Press the words and make them sing

Let them dance and let them steam

 

Bring the light to the night of day

And tie the rope to guide you home

Bring the light at the night of day

And follow the road to guide you home

 

Straight through the minds of the light of day

Straight to the hearts to the dark of night

Let them meet and let them speak

And let the dark fancy the day.

 

Fear the heart and make it sway

Be cautious as it guides you home

Bring the light to the night of day

And follow the road as it guides you home.
