It’s been a long time since I’ve
literally put pen to paper. I
forgot how it felt to actually create
something further away from the keyboard.
I forgot how I loved the thrill of writing until
my hand hurt and feeling every single word
I engraved into my notebooks.
I just forgot the little things I used to love.
The world became a machine that orders
the course of our lives but don’t let it
take the passion that’s within you.
Steal a piece of time and make something
beautiful out of it. Be a thief for a while and live
a few moments on the run. Just hide from the
world until you remember all the little things
you used to love.
Don’t forget to stalk me on Instagram, me on Facebook and follow me on Twitter.

Nice poem, thanks for the inspiration
You are welcome 😊
I now own three separate notebooks, one for daily gratitude, second for poetry, third for short stories and ideas. I often find myself sitting on various benches, watching the world go by, as I write down my thoughts. Sometimes I take a picture on my mobile, write a haiku, and when I get home, publish it on my blog.
You describe the mechanical element. This is fine as we are mechanical in the physical dimension. However the product is usually from the soul. How it is captured and recorded is secondary to this. Love this piece. Chris T.
Thank you so much for your comment <3
I love the idea of writing pen to paper. (or pencil but oh the humanity if it got erased!)
my only problem with that is…my brain works too fast to stand it. I like to write off the top of my head and just let the words flow out and fix them/re-arrange them as they come out. When I’m writing I have a thought like…down the way a bit as I’m writing a thought three lines above and trying to work my way to get to the future thought and its just….brings me to a screeching halt. The benefit of a keyboard is to let my fingers think for me 🙂
But this is good. I agree. To write it out and see it kind of…the permanence yet frailness of it being on a piece of paper. It’s beautiful.
Thank you so much. I’ve missed writing “old school” style because most of the time when I feel inspired I write on my laptop or my phone. And I know how it feels, sometimes our hands can’t work as fast as our brain
Same! It’s so much more romantic thinking of having a series of notebooks filled with old thoughts that you can flip through randomly.
On a keyboard a person rarely goes back more than a week or two worth of posts if the come out every day. In a notebook you could find something from years ago just as quickly as yesterday.
I don’t know, I can’t relate to this one as I can most of your writing. All of my poetry starts on paper and ends on paper. Sometimes it is shared through the computer, but I have 6 notebooks filled and more to come.
You write amazingly 😊
Thank you 😁
