Not at all. It's very free in a sense. When I write though, you are correct, I do not really think at all. I am just picturing a set of related images. Some people might read it and see extroverted intuition at work but all the images are subjective and internal unfold linearly sort of like a cascading stop-motion unfolding of a flower melting and turning into a city, or something like that. One image to the next is a symbol of the previous I suppose. It's a form of active imagination for me. As opposed to drawing on paper, the drawing occurs in my mind and i just write it.Well, it's overstatement i think but i thank you. And The part that makes me like your poem is about what i lack. I think whenever i write something, i lack something wild, rawness, instinct, and like my poem above, it's quite self-centered and simple moral story.
I was going to post this one next but i'll use it here as an example (thanks for lettin me blap a bit):
Out in the Aether,
Cold black space between us
I pushed into a reflection
and thought you'd fly into the sun and burn alive screaming
Instead I fly back now
Dying to the moon.
My last breath
A kiss to you for all the times
Your skeleton key.
