I Write For You

 

I write for you
pouring a thousand words and a multitude of lifetimes
across a page
for you
I write myself into your story your song and your poetry
I record the conversations that never happened and
the dreams you didn’t have
I make them for you
here in this place of shifting shadows
this fog of letters
is what I have to offer
all those glittering items
a crows nest of treasures
designed to capture your attention
your admiration
to hold you long enough that you can see me
will see me
not as I am
but as I am written
my hands cramp from this labor of love
but gasping I blot the last word
and offer it up
with the bowed neck of the hopeless
as yet I remain unread
but the words wait patiently to breathe
and I must too

I write. I write a lot. A. LOT. There are times I am half blind with a sentence ricocheting off the walls of my stupid, cant be shut off to save my life, brain. I am miserable until I get it down on paper. Punch it up a bit. Usually cross out half of it. And then breathe. Relax. Only to do it all again..... But I just thought that was me. How I am. Not a writer....noooo...not me. Writers are.....writing people. People Who Write. REALLY write. Write things that matter. All grown up very important things. Not.....me. I am just a scribbler of sorts. And I was/am content with that....if it's true, well then....a scribbler am I. Until the thought wormed its way in to my brain (the furtive sneaky bitch) that maybe...just maybe...that is writing. My style. My strange way. But....still writing. So here I am at the dance. Not sure I know any of the moves and the music is entirely mine. But.....only one way to find out. Would you care to join me?
