The Need to Write

2

Writers–
a dying breed?
may God forbid.

my ink is red and
my blood is blue
or black.

despair flows through my pen,
words are embedded in my haem and
the need to write suffocates me,
I cannot not
but sometimes I can’t

My time may be up,
have I peaked? or
maybe my journey is
through troughs

dear God!
prosper me in prose,
fill me with roses made
from the thorns of my emptiness,
let my breakages un-break me
