Ink Bleeding

Ink Bleeding

A Poem by Rhea752

Ink 
Bleeding 
Scratching 
Carving 
A world 
In the stars 
In the sky 
Of your mind 
A Heaven 
And a Hell 
To the writer 
And the reader 
Ink  
Bleeding 
Scratching 
Carving 
Your escape 
Of the heart 
And the soul

The third and fourth lines / words did a good job of summarizing the style of this poem. I picture each word as a triumphant attack being scratched against formlessness on a white void, a chiseled and decisive victory.

For some reason I wish "In the sky / Of your mind" was one line despite seeing "A world ... Of your mind" as probably an intended construct. Maybe just for variety's sake. That's not a criticism, just a comment.

The final sense of the poem, for me, was that writing is a desperate race to complete ourselves before we die; that our creativity is a permanent hemorrhage which will spill out of us, either intentionally, or fatally. And I heard the sound of a pen scratching paper with almost every line.

I love this, because it does not really say it helps. It's like saying writing is a bandage. And each time you write you change out your bandage.
