"Paper is more patient than people." –Anne Frank


The waves of creativity
crash against the corners of my mind–

Where the cinderblock walls
of over-analyzation
intersect

Where the waves of emotion
surge and rage,
relentlessly pushing
and pressing

Where the thought-logged waters
rise to dangerous heights

Where the ocean
threatens to spill over....

The floodgates
suddenly burst open–

And words pour out onto the page
until I am dehydrated

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
- Maya Angelou
When i was little/I used to point a chubby finger toward the dark sky/And ask my father/why some stars moved and others didn’t/He would laugh and explain that some were airplanes/I still wish on them today ~ Laugh-It-Out
The feathers of a crow are black/The ink of my pen is blacker/The pain of my heart is blackest~ Mckay
If love produced a blossom/I’d take it in my palm/What a blessing, the bright color!/How soothing, such a balm!/I’d keep a petal for my own/The rest, drop from my hands/For such a flower would multiply/And populate the lands~ thesilentraven
And I began to rival legends/Long entombed before my birth./But for all my much envied fame/The lust for more would not abate./The plaques and prizes with my name/Will, like all things, disintegrate. ~ TheEpic95 now known as Helena_Noel

So did you write this one first and then realized the extreme potency of those last few lines and turned them into a beautiful Haiku?? Well, either way I love both of them.

Love the imagery and personification! With such writing I highly doubt you ever have writers block. :). My only suggestion would be to talk 2 of the 3 "Where the's" out to make your piece more mysterious and less repetitive but other than that AMAZING!!!   *I'll be sure to read other pieces of yours since your great!
