When I look to my fingertips,
On writing, typing, seeing
Sights in stories, the imagination,
Of the yellowing pages of stories,
First floor, second floor, library collections
Of words enticing me since before knowledge,
Of the word novel.
Jumping from mind
Beating red, beating poetry,
Beating my mind quiet,
As it was before inspiration hit.
Me before my fingers run across a keyboard,
So familiar, I know it like the back of the hand
Which rests upon it.
Like the air I breath, the water that hydrates
The words that become myself.
Is only the producer,
I put necessity on a page,
Sharing with the universe a breadth of worlds,
Yet unwritten, yet unheard of.
Writing, I create, I make
Art of another kind,
Synonymous with psychological sanity,
And gravity in our galaxy,
It holds me together.
