THE WRITER INSIDE ME

 

The silent field of endless white

Can become a terror, in the night;

Alone, in the company of indecision,

I await a thought-filled vision;

An uncapped pen sits poised on the page,

Awaiting an inspired writer's rage;

The absence of sound is a distraction;

Each heartbeat is a thunderous explosion;

My labored breathes are major eruptions

And every thought lasts to no conclusion;

Suddenly, the mind surrenders control

To the storyteller, in the soul,

And words appear, from deep inside,

Where dreams and feelings hide.

A excellent poem. Words from a writer comes from the heart and experience in living. All great writers learn from pain and blood to become excellent writers. Hemingway would have lived longer and never wrote the great books of a Nation in many wars if he stayed at home instead of following war.

A excellent poem. Good to be able to read your words again.

This is a feeling I think every writer relates to and writes about at some point...inexorable and inescapable. But I suppose it comes with the territory of sharing our souls in ink. Wonderful descriptions of a familiar feeling.

Ah...the piercing agony of struggling to maintain control over our storytelling minds. Are we afraid to let go? Afraid to see what realities our pen will produce? The fear of listening to our inner parts, letting them bleed onto paper. You capture this well.

Very good writing. Real and true authors write what comes from the heart and mind and deep within the soul.

Christina - if I may,

Personally I am not one for using a rhyme scheme - by my own choice.

Your words have a rhythm and flow... parts are uneven BUT the thoughts are clear... and heard.

Take care,
Chris
