Hello there, thank you for reading my work. I’m actually not on frankly.me, but feel free to ask your questions on here or Twitter :)
The last time I checked having words to write was a poem. At least, that’s where it starts. Where you take it depends on one, how truthful you want to be, two how you want to present it (literally or metaphorically) and three how you make it sound, flow or rhyme.
Wow, thank you for bringing a smile to my face too :)
Ooo good question, there’s a couple of things I would tell you to consider. Have you reached the end of the poem? Are you clear about what else you have to say? If so, say it, as plain as it is and then tweak it accordingly. But ultimately I would say let the poem breathe, put it away and come back to it some other time. Your subconscious is clever enough to work without you. When it comes, it comes.
Thank you for stopping by, reading and sharing this beautiful comment with me.
