The Write Words

Meager melancholy musings
torn between threadbare tomes
and words wrenched from the womb
tumultuous themes thaw
flay themselves over faintest flaw
sew up the somber seams
savor sublime setting scenes.

      I’m glad you enjoyed it, Nige ! At its very basic, it’s about writing and the struggle with the inner critic. It’s from an older piece that I dug up. I still liked the original, which I can share if you like, but I wanted to do something a bit different with it.
