Maybe I ought to write

Written by: Charleen Martinez

Maybe I ought to write. 
Just write. 
I'll write until I get it right. 

I'll move the words 
words on the sheet 
until they shine with meaning 

Bang my head on my desk 
bleed 
I'm writing a story 

I'll cry 
Swear I'll never do it again 
curse writing 

And then I'll read what I wrote 
And share it with another soul 

I'll bite my nails at their response 
then sigh when their head nods 

Then I'll write 
I'll write again 
I'll just do that funny thing that makes me

suffer

anguish

cry

laugh

fly

be free

I will just write.
