The First Day

The First Day

A Poem

The clock struck twelve,
and costumes shelved.

Halloween passed,
Nanowrimo at last.

Fruit tea and tears,
As writing commences.

The fear of blank page,
Turned to blind rage.

As characters play,
Making things go their way.

And I, the struggling creator,
No more than a puppet I fear.

I type and type all through the night,
Yet when I’m done there’s still so much white…
