Just asking

Photo:B1961.Flickr.com


What does it mean

When the words I pen

Bring the mist

To my own eyes

Is there something

Buried deep within

Some awful truth

That I despise

I see no reason

When verses flow

Why raw emotion

Affects me so

They are just words

Arranged in ways

To spin a story

Not set ablaze

My simple thoughts

That grow complex

For every stanza

That I write

A dozen more

My mind rejects

Except

When they’re right

Writing touches places we have buried for a long, long time. Words trigger other words. Much cheaper than a shrink too. Well expressed.

I understand completely. You have expressed how the heart of a writer really beats! Wonderfully penned, Patrick. I very much enjoyed it.

Words can be beautiful tears.
Interesting that we share them.
Perhaps we write so that we can.

I use glue in my brain so words don't keep on falling and go taken away by a youthful wind...

Answer: It must touch upon a subconscious train of thought or memory, which elicits an emotional reaction. Which begs the question, do we really have "free will?" Or, does the impulse come first out of the sub-conscious mind? I heard the latter is actually true. Okay, enough of my BS for tonite. Have a good one. Enjoyed.
