"You're both the fire and the water that extinguishes it. You're the narrator, the protagonist, and the sidekick. You're the storyteller and the story told. You are somebody's something, but you are also your you." (John Green)

I write too much

My mind can't keep up

While I drink

I'm thinking of a soliloquy

To describe the biterness

Of the hot chocolate on my tongue

If I keep going

I'm afraid you'll see

That my words are all that is left of me

I'm no more than my scratches on the page

I love this. It really captures the image and holds it for the reader to see.
