When I was happy

There once was a time where I would dance
I would dance for the invisible audience.
That always clapped
Even when I fell on the invisible stage
One day my audience never showed
And the stage wasn’t there.
So I didn’t dance

There once was a time when I would sing
My off key voice sounded like a lullaby
To the air I sang to.
But the lullaby was broken
By my pain
And all that came out of my mouth were cries

There once was a time when I was happy.
I would sing and dance.
In front of the invisible audience.
But they failed to come to the show.
So I failed to perform.

Well, first when I want to write I think of how I feel and words to describe how I feel.
I like to make people think about what I'm writing. Sometimes I like to make it look like there is know sense in it but it is really hidden.
I also listen to music while I write it helps with ideas.
Also just make it you don't try to write like anyone else but you. If you like what you've written then go with it.
I hope these helped.
