My Pen

My Pen

A Poem by John T. Miller



With pen and paper I can write

But to what end, I know not

Each and every character's phase

Is the nicest part of all my days

Journey with friend or fight with fiend

Have this one, nice or mean

Love or lust is in my hand

What I choose my characters recommend

Very nice. I like how it shows the journey of writing, how many times writing is more following what the characters do in your head rather than planing out what they do, "What I choose my characters recommend". Good work!

I liked this short poem about writing. I know the feeling; my stories and poems seem to write themselves and I, just, hold the pen.

i LOVE this write.

You have a gift for packing so much into so little. This is only the second work of yours that i have read but i see a recurring theme here. Your work is very understated, and subtle, but theres sooooo much there.

I look forward to reading more.
