Why must I write using imagery?
Should I paint words as if those words
Should I paint words as if by coloring them,
I could draw the eye of the reader into my poems?
Should I just paint and paint words
for the sake of painting an image
into the reader’s mind?
Should I just paint words for them to see
what reality does not allow them to see?
Should I paint words for them to feel,
what reality does not allow them to feel?
Or Should I just paint words
and become an artist,
and don’t care about anything else,
not about me
Holding a brush,
not about me,
Just about me,
painting what I see,
What I feel,
while I paint words
with whatever I have in my hands.
