The Messenger

Thoughts, words, ideas;

Twisting around my mind. 
Yearning to break free;

To be written on paper.
The pen is my wand;

Plucking phrases from the bottomless void
I am the messenger;

The words my Ariadne. 
Help me on my journey;

And let the words break free.

I understand what you mean by not finding the right words. Many times I will tell someone about a story idea and they want me to write it out, but when I try, nothing feels right about it. It's not until I give up on writing the story that the words seem to burst forth and I have to write them down. It's almost as though it's not my story to tell, but something else's that is just using me to pen it. So it's not until I stop trying so hard that it begins to flow.

I appreciate how it is short but honest. One can get so much from it.
