"The trade of authorship is a violent, and indestructible obsession." (George Sand) "Even rest should be creative, so that time doesn't flow around us, but through us. This is art." (Anna Kamienska)


Da-dump, Da-dump,
The heart says as it dies
Thump, Thump,
The heart shouts as it lies
Frantic in its mystic beat
Slow in its dirge
I feel the fading heat,
And slowly with the earth I merge
More than I can say,
For the robust
For what may,
The feeling of the lust
Call out, Cry out
Shudder and shuffle
You’ll come about
To the world: your cry’s a muffle
Slowly, Silently
Whisper, Whimper

Most of the time, when I write, I think of this really cool introduction line and this is the product of one of those.
