Writers Fuel

A Poem by Melanie Jane Boicourt Shanks

 

White spaces saying fill-er-up.

 The fuel I give is unleaded.

Clickety-clack, clickety-clack

The words are now embedded.

 

I write poems of love and truth.

Some are lyrics to a song,

On display for not just me,

The world can read along.

haha this is short and sweet..i think it displays your style..i can tell it is a poem by you..lol i feel like i tell you the same things in these reviews..but i cant help it..i love the rhyming, i love the flow of all of your poems..you have some type of signature embedded through the lines of each individual poem..you never make me tired of reading your work because you are so diverse..you dont just speak out on the same-o same-o topics its always something new..but even if it may be on the same topic you never repeat your thoughts its like you find a new way to describe whats goin on in your head..I love it..lol..I enjoyed the read...
Well From One Word-Play Poet To The Next...Always Remember To Write With Your Heart!

Short but to the point. Well done. I don't really have any helpful advice for you. It flows nicely and you really get your point across.

I like this poem sorry that this isn't really a helpful review. I've come back to this poem for months now thinking that I would have something to add but no.

I liked this. Very lyrical and enjoyable to read. I also liked the sound effects of typing and the fact that you write for yourself but you let others read it too. That's what I like the most. It is so easy to start writing purely for audience and publication and in time a lot of us even forget why we began writing in the first place. Wonderfully penned and beautiful!

Short and sweet, exactly what I was going to say. Filling white space is supposed to be a sign of schizophrenia, but if that's true, I guess I'm one, too. You however have used an economy of words to says succinctly what we are all about.

Wow! This is a very nice and realistic peice indeed! Evry one needs fuel to run! It may be diesel, it may be petrol, it may be gasoline, it may be Tea, it may be coffee... depends on the thing or person we are talking about. For instance, my mom never gets the energy to start her days' work without her mug-full of tea! As for me, I have to listen to hard music to start my day!

Depends and varies from person to person. The poet and the writer's fuel is
"Clickety-clack, clickety-clack

The words are now embedded."

Nice work man! Keep writing! ~KA~
