I hate when you say something you regret.
(not into poetry anyways)
I saw it.
The very moment,
When I crushed your heart.
I saw how your face bent in pain,
how your eyes slowly started to water apart.
as I spoke the words that wounded you so deep, and made you drain
It agonised me to see you hurt, yet I could not tell you so.
I did not even dare to tell you I am sorry,
when chances came in row.
Now it's too late, and I'm not even worthy of asking you, altough i pine .
But I am sorry, and I despise my actions,
as I poisoned you with burdens of mine.
Unjust it was, so unheartily cold,
yet something I said in the heat of anger alone
I brought you sorrow of my own,
I made you lying down, made you to mourn.
Theres no way I can forgive myself, and certainly not ask you to forgive me.
I would love to publish some of my work but have no idea what to do! Do I need a literary agent? Is the Writers & Artists' Yearbook worth getting and using? What about the worries that my work might get used by someone else? Sorry I worry a lot... :-(
how realitic is it to want to write for a living? I don't mean JUST novels, but freelance writing for companies as well as novels and all that sort of thing.
Is it feasible? Or would you end up as a stereotypical "tortured penniless writer"?
Is it better just as a part-time / spare-time thing? Or is it actually possible to become a full time writer?
In either case, does it really matter if you don't have a degree (or indeed any a-levels) in English? Can you just go for it?
I have problems when trying to write. It's not for lack of feeling things either. I percieve things and feel them intensely, and really want to convey this intangible beauty to people, but I get bad writers block and trouble with structure. Any tips much appreciated, rep available.
Hi naive, I remember you from some time ago. Did you get anywhere with that book idea of yours?
Trying to write short stories set in different parts of Britain.
Count me in! It's a great idea.
