that’s how you write

To avoid ripping their ribs, I lie.

but every me in my poems,

is a little part of “I”

you got to live it all,

before you rhyme and write.

you have to absorb it

and  feel it deep inside

ink of your soul,

and the pages of your mind

once it’s in your head

you just don’t have to keep sight

the words make their rules,

the sentences abide.

the scene shift like magic,

everything changes, left/right

you feel like floating

and your throat feels thight

as if somebody just dropped

pebbles in your windpipe

you sing your poems,

and that’s how it rhymes,

feels like walking on one leg,

at mad high heights

A wieght shifts and,

you feel a light,

a poem rests, you read it twice,

the end feels infinite,

you can’t help confessing

everything that’s behind

a mix of passion, ambition and pride

that’s how you get it right,

that’s how you write
