Made Up

Made Up

A Poem by ettorney
"

A poem about the personal nature of writing.

"
I didn't steal it.
I made it up.
I didn't find it.
I made it up.
It was neither given to me nor taken from me
'cause I made it up.

Did I wish for it?
Do I desire it?
Oh! Shall I share it?

Perhaps.

It gives me light
'Cause I made it shine.
It gives me hope.
'Cause I made it grow.
It gives me comfort
when I let it rest inside

here.  With me.

And
though it cannot touch me,
nor hold me,
nor kiss me,

it's here because I made it just for me.

It's warm fuzzies and sunshine. You show how it feels. I like this. Writing is such a personal thing. I think if someone were to tell me that writing had become illegal, I would hide myself away with a flashlight in the dark corner of the closet and write anyway 'cause it's for me. This is brilliant. I like how this felt to read.

Perhaps writing cannot touch or hold or kiss you, but if that is the goal... who knows.

It gives me light, 'cause you made it glow!

I like it. I am new to poems, so I can only critique based on if I like it or didn't like it. This a quirky feel and flowed right off the page.

About
I love to write. I love the process of writing. Although not perfect myself, I hate bad grammar and spelling. I critique intellectually but want to be moved emotionally by your writing. Maybe .. more..
