"If there is no such thing as magic...then what is writing?."-authoress17 (me)


It comes easily,

Like raindrops falling from a cloud,

Blood from a a vein,

Words from the mouth

It comes from within,

A miraculous feeling

To have my words written,

Upon a page

While the world changes,

Writting never stays,

Never fails


The author's comments:

This poem decribes my feelings towards writing. To me, it isn't a hobby, it is a need. If I didn't have writing, I am uncertain of what I would do to keep myself sane.

Really like this! This poem kind of descibes poetry for me. If you want some constructive criticism, just work on some editing first. But otherwise AMAZING.

Thank so much for your comment.  I must have typed it wrong. It was supposed to be "Writing never strays". Haha sorry, dsylexia. Thanks for bringing that to my attention.

Awesome poem!! And it definitely speaks to me :) I do have one comment though. The last two lines didn't quite make sense to me; they didn't seem to flow in the same direction as the rest of the poem. Well, I guess it was mostly the second-to-last line "writing never stays," To me, saying something like along the lines of "writing always stays," seems to make a little more sense, but I might just be missing your point...and forgive me if I am. Overall this was a delightful poem, very well-written!!

Hi, so this impresses me because ugh I can't do that. Nvertheless, on the second to last line, writing has one 't'. In the way of more valuable comments, I might change up the syntax by asking a rhetorical question or something of the like. Also, I would have said see instead of have. All said, amazing work.
