What is a writer?
Someone who shares pictures and feelings,
Experiences and emotion.
She doesn’t just write words. Empty.
A writer paints without colors and brushes
She orchestrates without instruments or notes.
A writer captures words
She’s moved by sentences and paragraphs
She doesn’t just experience books, she reads book reviews and conversations and cereal boxes
She gets lost in the words of others
And she gets lost in the words she creates
She has a story to tell and sometimes she doesn’t know what that story is
Or who the story is for
Maybe it’s for herself.
Maybe it’s for the world.
Until she sits before that blank page and her fingers hit those solid keys
And she slowly disappears.
She gets lost in her thoughts
And her thoughts are discovered
Somehow they unravel.
Somehow they release themselves, releasing her
Releasing a message she didn’t know was there.
And she can breathe.
