Paper and Pen

If I don’t keep writing, I’ll die. Its my only means of surviving the pain that dwells inside. As long as I write putting pen to paper, the pain can escape me and I can find some relief. So I keep on writing page after page, pain flowing freely from ink. And just as I’m reaching a place where there’s peace, my pen runs dry.

    Very profound and thought provoking imagery. I can’t pretend to know how you feel but I am beginning to understand through your vivid words.

  • So kind of you to take the time to read my amateur writing. Thanks for your comments as always. :)

    The therapy of writing is something that if it works for you I think it is such a blessing.
    Keep writing even if the words seem jumbled….it doesn’t matter me thinks….as long as the expression is allowed to flow.
    So if that ink feels like it is drying out….. I recommend dipping your thoughts in the words of this wonderful community :O))

  • Thank you Arcadia. :)
