What it Means to Write

| September 16, 2013 | 1 Comment

To write is to bleed, to cry and to laugh.
The ink we use is a special concoction of blood, tears and smiles.
Words are built not of letters but of reactions, of feelings, of thoughts.
To write is pain, to write is joy.

You write because there is no way you cannot.
To write is not a hobby but a way of life.
To write is to have your fingers possessed
And your body stripped of its clothes.

To write is to observe, to listen, to read.
To write is to act, to soliloquize, to paint.
To write is to soar, to jump and to fly.
To write is to crash, to burn and to pick yourself back up.

To write is to lose yourself, to purge,
to suffer, to torture.
To write is to find yourself, to build,
to rejoice, to soothe.

To write is to write,
And to write is
to define what it means
to write.
