Inspired By Darkness
The greatest thing that ever happened to my writing is the disquiet in my head
And in my soul.
The raging storm which has made me cower,
Against this I have no power
And yet, these tribulations
Cause the ink of my pen to flow
Like the waterfalls of faraway lands
If I were happy, balanced and in control,
My writing would be banal, boring-
In my darkest hours and bleakest days
My writing has flourished
Beside my withering soul.
Sadness- I thank you
Anger- Please don’t leave me
Raging storm inside my head- Drench me.
For you flood my pages with the brightest words of my heart and soul.
