Poem: When I Write.

When I write

My soul ignites,

And I burst

Into flames,

As the words call out

My name.

_____________________

Every emotion

Is an opportunity,

To design a world

Not currently existing.

_____________________

To write to my heart’s delight,

To bleed words with all of my might.

_____________________

No heartbreak is

off limits,

No love is lost:

I will clean my tears

And write about it.

_____________________

No plagiarists can

steal my joy,

Even though like the Biblical thief,

They seek to steal, kill and destroy.

_____________________

To write well,

You have to be under a spell,

_____________________

Twisting worldly worries

Into compelling stories.

_____________________

Writing is like a never-ending war

Where you are always the Victor.
