These Words (IX)

09 Sep

These Words

I sit in wonder, as the words flow
from my mind, onto the page.
Words born from the ether
of imagination; borne unto the world.
And yet, even as they flow free,
blooming from their dormancy,
I wonder…what they mean.
And so, the seeds of doubt are sown,
by the demon buried deep within.
Seeds that I know will only fester
in the darkness of my insecurities.
I wonder, if these words are worth saving.
Even so, I write, for I can do nothing else;
I write…and pray they hold meaning
that I can no longer see,
for the demon has blinded me.
I spew out the words
onto the page, as though they’re gibberish,
and pray this language I speak,
still exists in the mind of you.

    I get the same feelings, I think we all do. ‘Does anyone care what/if I write?’ ‘Does what I write make sense to anyone?’

    I love your writing, it’s all lil pieces of you, and I Loves you

      Thanks Darling. I think it is a feeling that many, if not all, writers feel.

      I love everything you write and draw. 😀

    FABulous write, Craig. I really can relate to this, especially through the last few months.

      It has a strong meaning to me too in the past month or so. Thanks Cheryl.
