Purge My Mind


I stare at the computer screen

Wanting…no needing to write

There is something inside me

Desperately wanting to come out

To weave that magically spell of words and emotions

Us storytellers live for

But something is stopping me

Holding me back

Turning my words into distance cries

Keeping the emotions of my thoughts

From showing me what it is they yearn to tell me

Somehow I must break this dam

Purge my mind of distractions

So the story inside of me

Can weave its magic

Spellbinding those who wish to fly away

On a journey of horror, romance, suspense

But most of all

Happy endings
