well, it's about that force that makes us write. The force that drives us forward. That same force that makes us try again and again even through the writers block.



A Poets curse

By Aurther Stoll

I am a writer a Poet,

It was the words, that i am a slave,

And so i write, going on like a lone comet,

But it be a gift that to me it gave,

Like a double bladed sword,

This eternal gift and curse,

This power of the word,

That with in my soul,

In that labyrinth lays that beast,

My soul burns too far for counsel,

and that beast waits to feast,

On that fire,

Inside my soul so bright,

That beast hungers so dire,

Like a noose tied so tight,

This gift,

This curse,

This beast that I must bare.

It's mine,

The poets curse.
