Writing

Avatar Author: Jim Stitzel I dabble a little in a lot of things -- writing, webcomics, gaming, photography, web design, music, and more. I'm a full-time code-wrangler and a part-time farmer with 40 acres, a lot of animals, and far, far too much to do. Read Bio

Writing is a special form of insanity,
Voices clattering,
Nattering,
Screaming to get out.
Shining,
Blinding,
Compelling a feverish obsession.

Ideas are a puff in the wind,
Vaporous,
There and gone again,
Scrabble to grab them,
Fingers close around them,
and even then,
Sometimes,
They still get away.

    This was the start of a poem (a rare enough event in and of itself) I’d drafted months ago. It never got finished, and now when I look at it, it reads as complete to me. So, now, I throw it to the wind.
