Live 2 Write, Write 2 Live

How do I kill 
This 
Incessant need 
This humming drone 
Of never ending 
Greyness 
Bleak weather clouds 
Covering my most loved 
Consciousness 
I covet the insane 
The loose ends that
 Fail to tie 
Fail to restrain 
This wicked longing 
To rise and fight and bleed 
I try to mate 
To breed this thought 
Spreading this fever 
Hot and heady 
Massing warriors of 
Bone and blood and ink 
And Melody 
Cradled within till fully grown 
And ready to evolve 
I can't turn back now, too late 
for 
Regret and guilt and apathy 
I keep the beat of this... 
Skin-drum 
Pulsing, pulsing, repeating its rhythm 
I wanna shed 
this hazy molted plumage 
This reeking withered state 
Rise and fight and bleed 
Massing us warriors of 
Bone and blood and ink 
I live to write 
I write to live 
Fanciful flight 
Within words 
Rise and fight and bleed 
Massing us warriors of 
Bone and blood and ink 
Sing 
Melodies of conversion 
Melodies of change 
Massing my fellow warriors 
Of bone and blood and ink 
Just Write
