Live Life Like A Party That Never Ends

The rhythm of nails tapping on a keyboard
Discovering what has not been explored

Triggering inspiration from a blank screen
Envisualizing what has yet to be seen

Eyebrows and forehead furrowing
As thoughts and ideas are growing

Mouth salivates with juicy plots
Tying up stories in twisted knots

Developing characters that come to life
As protagonist and antagonist quarrel and strife

Mind games and a bag of tricks
Tongue dances behind closed lips

Forming words still left unsaid
Spiraling out like a spool of thread

Pulsating with thoughts of inspiration
The writer’s bliss has just begun

The author's comments:
This is how all great stories start out.

I agree with shadowrider, although the words don't sound blissful, you put them together to make the beautiful tension of a writer's mind- I really like this.

I completely disagree with TanGem. Taking an idea and weaving a complex tapestry of twists and turns is the most fun part of being a writer! I loved this, it captures the spirit of writing!

I kind of agree with Tangem on this one but the concept is spot on :)

Love is not a feeling; it is a gift, an act, an ultimate sacrifice. -Me (Em)

Hmm... I can understand where you want to go with this, but I think you should look again at your word choice here. A lot of it doesn't agree with the tone you're going for: "bliss." For example, you use "nails tapping," "triggering," "eyebrows... furrowing," "twisted knots," "quarrel and strife," "mind games," and "tricks," none of which sound very blissful. Overall this poem is a great idea, but it needs quite a bit of work if you want to achieve your goal here.
