NaPoWriMo – Day 3

NaPoWriMo – Day 3

The day three prompt was to write a poem in the form of a fan letter to a celebrity, or, any famous person, dead or alive.  I chose Howard Hughes because his life story has always kind of struck a chord with me for a number of reasons.  Here is my poem.

Dear Mr Hughes

Dear Mr Hughes

I wanted you to know
That you have my understanding
And my admiration

Every shot had to be right
Every vision perfect
Casting, consume, dialogue
Perfect, perfect, perfect

My novel grows in an atmosphere
Dark and suffocating
As my heart cries out in agonies
Over every word
And every letter
Perfect, perfect, perfect

No one else can understand
They can’t see the flaws
That stand out stark
Within the art
Horrifyingly wrong

Dear Mr Hughes
Please tell me now
Once and for all
In the conquest for perfection
That elusive destination on the horizon

Dear, dear Mr Hughes
Please tell me
Now you’re done and can do no more
That it’s worth it
