We all have dreams. Some may haunt us as they never decide to come true. Others may brighten each and every day as it is renewed over and over again. My dream was to be a writer. But over time, that particular dream has shifted focus, and it refuses to let me sleep in peace.

Pages of Smeared Words

by ivoryannalise

The empty stage is before me.

The words are threatening to come free.

But they are trapped,

Left unable to adapt.

The uncertainty and fear,

Cause the words to smear.

The life of a playwright,

For me is not bright.

There are too many words,

With too few happy birds.

It all causes the words to spin and spin,

And to disappear like an unborn twin.

It all stops.

There are only silly little props,

And unbroken dreams,

With me to sow the seams.

Maybe the pages will never form a play,

But does that leave me to wonder astray?

The stage will always await,

Even if to be a playwright is not my fate.

@nessybrown I'm so glad that you liked it and were able to connect!! I know what you mean. Sometimes, there's like a brick wall between me and the story. :D

I loved the way you wrote this. Sometimes when I read a story I can't really connect with it and it's like there's no emotion felt, but with this I can actually feel something, lol. It's like I'm actually on that stage.

@bernardtwindwil True. I didn't know that. I haven't really tried writing free verse since I've been writing with rhymes. That's great. Awe! That...that is so sweet of you too say! :'D
