Servant of The Craft

Poetry By: Maij

The fervor that drives people who are passionate about their craft; be it sculpture, painting or in our case writing. Its a passion you couldn't get rid of even if you wanted to...

A passion surges to the fingertips,

of the chisel wielder.
Hacking erratically at the stone,
he is desperate to hone
the elusive allure of inspiration;
the influence that
ensnares his mind,
and blends his days and nights to infinity.
Though he labors incessantly,
fueled by elements that arouse and dissuade,
he is no closer to the cusp
of the enlightened state to which he journeys.
His ardor,
though noble,
is also his curse.
A slave to his art,
he is forced to endure
the miserable delight,
that epitomizes his craft.
