“Only the very weak-minded refuse to be influenced by literature and poetry.”
― Cassandra Clare

I cannot sleep I cannot be
Until I bare this piece of heart
It is not neat nor is it pretty
But it is me
It starts with the infection
Setting deep within my marrow
It is not bright nor is it gentle
But it is me
The thought begins to fester
The idea begins to form
It is not wonderful nor splendid
But it is me
The contagion hits my fingers
Drawing thought into motion
It is not ordered nor is it pleasant
But it is me
The only cure for this infection
Is to free the words within
To turn them into beauty
And to let myself be me

It is the writers lifeblood their purpose, their song and dance...Their inspiration.

Whoa...I'm speechless. I never thought of it that way, this is a real unique way to describe a passion for writting. Awesome job, keep it up! :)
