Do you ever hammer out words,
scattering them  onto blank pages,
with a passion that rages

       an avalance of words,
               that sear the brain
                      and boils the blood
as it races to your fingers

              The mind sings with images,
              composing a symphony of sounds
              melding, merging, with a purpose
a purpose driven by expressive eruption

Writing lines with no closure
hearing, driven by,
a cacophony that strums from within
begging to express feelings

          all that wells inside,
                not one emotion
                         not a single vision
each small piece bridging to create

An effort that frames the individual
linking mind with fingers
          until emotion climaxes
                  Like stars searing the darkness as they fall
                          

simply yearning to be heard

In my ever-most-humble opinion, this 'write' is super-excellent (finely capturing the essence of the act of writing!)

very serious, long-sustained applause!!

Ali.
You do such things with my imagination here.
Just imagine I am smiling Ö to myself .. as I reread
taking me with you where words canít go.
This invites, compels the reader
to hear and feel between the lines,
and imagine something that defies verbal explanation,
a need that defies verbal description.
Or maybe itís just my imagination
playing tricks on me again.
Imagine I am smiling,
Because I am Ö
