Writing Syndrome

Writing Syndrome

A Poem by Amanda Moubarak

the nib of my pen is moving fluently
the ink bleeds on paper as poetry
suddenly a word pushed itself unwillingly
out of context, with inapplicability
my pen stopped writing
my hand started shaking
my sentence has ended midway
and the meaning has gone astray
i ripped the paper, throwed it in the bin
forced my hand to handle the pen
reluctantly, i willed myself to iterate
though i know the unwritten will retaliate
so i push my blank books on the ground
where torn out papers are scattered all around
i think to myself that this can't be the end
because what's unsaid demands to be said
now the words that have nowhere to go
flood throughout my body into my soul
then as my eyes experienced waterfalls
my hands wrote with my blood on the walls
and finally after there was red everywhere
i could lastly breathe non-toxic air
i now can leave this dark room behind
rewrite books where words are redefined

I like when you called it a "syndrome" because it's kinda true ! we become obssessed with writing. sometimes we want to write but we just don't know how to start, and sometimes the ideas just flew instantly on the paper... it's confusing really !
" because the insaid demands to be said '" here's clearly " I like your peom very much " xD
it's something to look forward to read
Good Job ^^

Writing can cause deep frustration at times. Many is the time I have torn up paper and thrown it in the bin. You express that frustration well and I enjoyed the metaphor you used.

I think most writers would be able to. I've never met one yet who hasn't had frustration with words... read more
I agree with black Jess
And I love the term of it
being a "syndrome"

I'm obsessed
with words and
I loved this very
much.

Delightful perspective on a frustrating moment, Amanda. Maybe the red walls are metaphorical forced restraints on a tortured soul crying to be read everywhere.-- Doug

exactly. thank you for your comment and for sharing your thoughts
When the blank is the blank is the blank.
Then suddenly the pen twitches to life, and before you know it a sentence is staring back at you.
If only it didn't always happen at four in the morning.

"...the ink bleeds on paper as poetry"

It's pretty fascinating how that works, isn't it? I've been at it for twenty plus years, and I'm still amazed at the ebb and flow of it. Good to meet you, Amanda!
