How should I start?
Type some words here?

     Or here?

Or here?

I type words––I write them down on electronic paper,
For everyone to see.
Nothing more.
Nothing less.

I guess. . .

Should I make it rhyme?
Or should I keep the rhythm in time?
I suppose both will do.
It’s not like this is anything new.

What rhyme scheme should I use?
What quotes should I repeat?

“I’ll make him an offer he can’t refuse.”
Or something with that beat. . .

This is awkward.
This is weird.
I think I’ll go now.


I’m going.

Wait just a minute.
What have I done?
I haven’t done anything,
Since I’ve begun.

Just write down some words,
So aimlessly?
I don’t quite know why.
That doesn’t really suit me.

I like to think about these things,
To ponder over them.

This is awkward.
Should I leave again?

Alright, what is this?
My stream of consciousness?
Or just an ugly mess?

Maybe if I write over here,
It will seem a bit nicer. . .

Didn’t work.

Maybe here?

I already tried that.

Alright then, friend,
I’ll let you go.
So go on your way,
Enjoy the flow,
Of everyday life,
Those twists and turns,
The love and the ache,
That makes hearts burn,
On fire for something––anything,
In their boring little lives,
To make them feel like they’re alive.

So––so long, friend,
I wish you well,
On the paths you’ve chosen,
May you all find yourselves.
Just me free-writing. . .

My usual stream of consciousness, everybody.

I think everyone who has tried to write something has ended up with something like this in one of their drafts at one point or another. (I know I have.)

Nothing to say what hasnt been said
a good bit of words that's flown from your head
I like to do free verse from time to time
Instantly my fingers start typing in rhyme
No time to think when I'm put on the spot
So what I'm trying to say is I liked it a lot.

I love this! It's so witty and meta. Free verse is so fun and you did a really good job of playing with line breaks.
