    dotsWhy, A Writer?dots

    Why must i write,
    Keeping me up all night?

    Why must I see my pain on the page,
    Causing a deeper understanding of my rage?

    Why must love spill over from my pen,
    Resulting in a truer love from within?

    Why do i hate to feel, so strong,
    Even when perfection turns to wrong?

    Does anyone know what it's like,
    To turn words over as you write?

    Am I alone,
    Sitting on my syntax throne?

    Am I the verbal master,
    Waiting on certain disaster?
    Sometimes, I wish I was a derelict,
    Instead of finding the words that always fit.

    I turn thoughts in my head,
    For what I write i sometimes dread.

    Maybe, with a dead mind I won't realize,
    Even the greatest writers someday dies.

      I have read several od your poem, I must say I like that you try to put an original twist on known subjects and do it quite well.

    This line is a masterpiece:

    Why must I see my pain on the page,
    Causing a deeper understanding of my rage?

    This was super well written

      It's so true...it feels like you've captured the feleings of this majorely well...I would feel privelidged if you would read 'I write for fear' adn maybe 'I write'(challenging titles) because i wonder if you will agree...

      I think that might be a syntax throne friend. I love the screen name you picked and the avitar.
    As for the poem, the rhyme is a little simplistic for such a serious searching write, but your questions are good ones. And yes, I think you will find most writers here turn lines over and over in their heads. I do my best writing in my sleep. I don't sleep very well,

      I love the whole concept behind this. Oh the passion of writers such as ourselves. The life of an artist is truly difficult...art imitates life. And life is never a clean and sure thing. Beautifully written my dear.
