Poems, Poems, & Short Stories

Feb 16, 2012 in

I've been having a lot of emotions inside of me lately, neither sad nor ridiculous ecstacy, but just emotions. Some of the poems I like more than others, and some I have yet to re-read, or type up.

I haven't been thinking too much about them; just focusing on getting them onto paper. There are a lot more poems inside of me for the period, and they have just begun to surface. I know these times passes - the bursts of inspiration to write - and many a time, I have let them slip by without getting much done. This time, I hope it will be different, and I'll be able to seize the emotions before they slip past.

At the same time, however, I know that I can't force the poems. Sure, they will come out, but not in the shapes they are supposed to, and in such a way that I won't be able to rework them into what they were meant to be. As all other things, we'll see how it goes. I'll post my poems if they turn out to be appropriate.

In related news, I went through my story folder a few days back, and yikes! I have a plethora of unfinished stories in there, hiding in a folder within a folder, within yet another folder. My folder of unfinished poems is another wild animal altogether… The good thing about that particular foray into the depths of my computer is that now I'm motivated to finish at least some of those stories. I have good ideas hidden somewhere in there that can turn into something great if I work on them hard enough.
