The breeze is cool
As it wafts through my window
Cars rumble down the road
A song is stuck in my head
Ringing in my ears
Begging to be let out
But tonight is unlike other nights
I can feel it in the air
I am so determined
To get all my thoughts down
Down on paper
I need to listen to only my heart
Why does it feel so necessary tonight?
Has it been so long?
That question was rhetorical...
It has been very long
I rearrange the pile of pillows below me
I can't figure it out
My motivation behind it
The thrill of it being written
In ink
Its solidness
Like stone
Carved into a shape
That will remain
I look at my work so far
The color blue dances all over my crisp, white paper
I am happy

Could you please check out my novel, Spirit Bound? I know it is rather long but I really, really want someone to comment on it. It would make my day :)
