Is the feeling of inspiration
with the inability to express it.
From beginning to end
is the perfect poem
written in one stroke of a pen.
These are the ones we call
are the those with ink in their veins.
are the those who's fingertips are stained.
are the those who can't sleep at night,
is the passion that drives them to write.
are the those who use language as a tool,
are the those like myself,
who hated English, in school.

their raptures of heaven
or their exploits in hell.
they take you with them,
wherever they dwell.
