The Nothing Poem

poem by: Rachel Cartwright
Written on Apr 17, 2012

I want to write a poem
 But I don't know what to write
 Usually I get inspiration 
At this time of night
 

But I guess I can't write a poem
 Cause now I'm too tired
 But if I ever write one
 I hope you get inspired
 

This is really fun
 Not knowing what to write
 I don't even think
 All I do is type
 

I know that this is nonsense
 But what is there to write
 How can I write something
 When it's so late at night
 

Well there's always next time
 Well I better end this write
 I better go to bed now
 So now I say good night!

Double scripts in life's wicked flips three verbs and throwing nothing but reverb. Twice the lyrical lines, avast steer clear of this lyrical pioneer with mystical lines futuristic rhymes killing the physics of time. My intellectual beauty its brilliance, resilience of this philosophical crazy mind with speeds in excess of a Maserati mind. Only crazy is the vehicle of world's transformation it's finicky essence of brilliant master's of the mind's Live love with the sweat of fears life's wicked in so many way's. To the crazy mind's of a crazed thinking way, crazy changed before crazy ever changed a crazy mind. Go for life of the amazing, choose what you want & be much more. Provocative model of a photograph a clay sculpture of a lady in kind. Artist of provocative art's mending an bending hour's to love. Transducer of fear to fevers love's virtues of unconditional greatest philosophy. To world's of philosophical philosophies in prophet's of profits of a personal fee in which life agrees. Guns To jungles it's sweeter roses, to the unconventional wisdoms which has never been. To stand & live for better, than some kind of gun. Fast lifestyles of the rocking chairs, sit back and enjoy the speed of memories life's to live once an life has it's own pace. Composer's of compromises the sediments of our settlements are noteworthy symphonies in musical scales an impale to life's frail detail.   ☆U N I V € R S € ★ INT€R 》°O ₩ N S £ € F°《 CONN€T€D Pen's broadcasting name #intellectual #property #rights #reserved  #poet #poetry #Wicked #Romancer

I like just tossing words out and see what happens, no planning or thought, winging it, even it's jumbled and goofy.... best way to write I think... I like your poem because I stay up late too, good time to be inspired (it's ok to be confused)
