Just write.

bella cortez

We write in ways we can't explain. Just feel the pain and it will be said.

    The best poetry comes from going inside any portraying the feelings encountered there. Good, well expressed short poem, Bella!

    Bella, Charles Bukowski said this when he wrote about writing:
    “unless it comes out of
    your soul like a rocket,
    unless being still would
    drive you to madness or
    suicide or murder,
    don't do it.
    unless the sun inside you is
    burning your gut,
    don't do it.

    when it is truly time,
    and if you have been chosen,
    it will do it by
    itself and it will keep on doing it
    until you die or it dies in you.

    there is no other way.

    and there never was.”
    ― Charles Bukowski

    You said the same thing, just more elegantly and in only two lines!

        Thank you! And thanks for the friendship request, it is an honor. I love Bukowski, both books and poems. Wish I could write as good as him or you for that matter.
