Inside the Author’s Head

Recently I was asked how i write my poems, and i had no answer beyond ‘i just do’. But I’ve been thinking about it. I am constantly writing poems. As I’m walking to school, when I’m getting dressed, all the time. It is only when a line or stanza takes such strong hold of me that I can’t let it go when I finally sit down and write it out. And then it just comes. I don’t have a formula and I don’t ever have to force a line. It just happens and I think that that is how poetry should always work. It just should. That’s when it’s good and honest.
