Haunting Words


Agony of not writing
Makes me limbs writhing
Thoughts overwhelmed
And my attention is all it claimed
It’s a nerve splitting ache
To not let the word-Nile flow
Baking brain burns black
For the loss of pen’s ink
Starch white paper haunts me
Like a ghost in the shadow
Screams make me mute and deaf
And all I hear is the wailing of the words
The word monster possessed me
I willfully succumbed
Once I tasted the writing fruit
Eternal demand does it create
The screen singing to life made the monster ploy
The document opens and it jumps in joy
I let it course through my body
To find the solace of writing!
