Reader and Writer

Blindness overcomes the ready reader.
Invisible embraces,
Lids are closed.
Hands are shook.
The reader and writer join minds
All senses depart.

And then
The reader stands alone
Veering in dark nothingness.

Words flow from the writer
Vague, precise
Float and connect
A visionary guide:
What the writer writes
Splatters across the black canvas.

White to black, grey to color
Nothingness to vibrant life
Monotony to a brazen world -
As the reader sees with new eyes
Crafted from soul being.

Pages fly by
as life is written by the pen,
Words are spoken from the soul
Every heartbeat and heartthrob
Are torn desperately from the spine –
The covers are worn from tears
The pockmark scars of sword fights
Laughter, sewn into the stain
Life is created.

The truce between the reader and writer
Is buried, after
The last page is turned.

Buried, deep
In the treasure trove of their hearts,
Where eagerness awaits
For the next adventure to begin,
Between the reader
And writer.
