How Do You Write Them?

How do you write things

that have no words

to express them

that roll around

in your head

like clouds

with no purpose

that live in expanses

where no boundaries


that swarm

your nights and days

without warning


do you write

those things?

Letter to My Poet

This poem was written for a writing prompt on Twitter and based on the title of my dear friend Entirety J. Roberts‘ first published book of poetry “Dear Poet- A Book of Uncommon Prayers.” It is a must read book of her heart and soul which helped lead me to this poem.



Dear Poet,

You captured me

extracted words

from marrow of my bones

sucked ink

from barely pumping veins

poured it all

onto a page

and blessed me

with the honor

of becoming one

with you
