Pen sick

Today, I want to share a little about my personal quest to become a writer. It is a poem that I wrote possibly years ago, rediscovered recently and edited and named three days ago.

The sleep is not in my eyes.

I can feel it in my legs,

My shoulders,

The swollen insteps of my feet.

The muscles of my arms

Are taut

But ideas flow as from

A broken dam.

Like a waterfall fuelled by

The raging rain

The words and sentences pour

Out a gripping yarn of sorts.

My eyes blaze with

The fire of my soul;

Livid with excitement of the tale.

I bid them rest.

They do not shut.

I yawn,

But only jaws tire-

Twelve hours since

My  midnight call to write.
