How can I make a masterpiece?

You were supposed to write something.

But you couldn’t fathom why your mind is overflowing

With too much lists and codes, too much worries—it’s disgusting.

So you end up staring at your laptop,

fingertips ready to dance with the keypad,

eyes glued to the screen, chair’s heating up for real.

You’ve been planning to write something,

but no swift thought can satisfy your brain’s craving—for something original, something unclichéd that could mean a thing.

Then you turn to a book you were reading, hoping for the light bulb to say, ting!

Unfortunately there’s still nothing.

Is this a mere writer’s block or but pure folly?

Nonetheless, you really want to write something,

so you thrust your whole being to ponder thoroughly, to dig for ideas tremendously

But your disoriented mind is not helping.

It’s when your heart start pounding, that you realize what’s missing.

You forgot to listen to your heart, as your mind overrule you with boring facts and schemes.

It was saying something.

What did it say?

Your heart says it’s in pain.

You then grabbed this time your pen and paper,

jotting down each word your heart dictates.

You didn’t mind if it’s basic and plain, if it lacks pompous adjectives or peculiar adverbs

All you care is what your heart is telling you to create.

You didn’t mind how the readers would react.

It’s merely for the purpose of bursting them feelings out.

You then finish the piece out of sheer signals from the heart.

Making you discern it’s not hard after all, it only takes a heart that speaks to make a such masterpiece.

    “for something original, something unclichéd that could mean a thing…” Yeah. That’s the hardest part. But listening to your heart is a good solution. Tough to do sometimes. Nice piece.

  3. My process is…
    Write. Back up, redo, back up, change a word. Erase the whole thing. Start over, delete it all. Go with the original version. Lol

        That’s a lot of to-do’s!!! Lol i feel you. Sometimes we get sooo overwhelmed with too many ideas we tend to lose track on how to start in the first place. What’s Pushkar btw? Lord Shive and Krishna stories sound fascinating! Let me know once you finished them up ☺️❤️

    Great use of words,I often feel like that. I have an idea that I will write today or tomorrow and maybe it will work out. Writing a sort with a cliffhanger and then another person would continue however they like with every person making a twist in the story, that’s if anyone would be interested
