I Write, You Write, We Write

I never really gave thought to the reason why I write. Some of you say you do because it is therapeutical so you string a few words, or more, and tell us a story or two, true or not, express your pain or hurt, laughs and joy, deeds and intents, desires and sexcapades. Some of us only rant and wish life was not the way it was.

It may not get better right now but the words given vent to could lighten the writer.

I used to write because it was beautiful to create something out of nothing. More than not likely, it would start with a blank page & then out pours essence from your heart & mind and it turns from letters to words, from words to sentences, from sentences to paragraphs, from paragraphs to chapters, from chapters to books.

And some authors are borne.

It is beautiful, and sounds easy on the ear too, the way the words fall in steady rhythm and charming rhymes. A few lines carrying so much meaning expressed from the heart of the writer to the mind of the reader.

There’s no better meaning to the word poetry.

Words fall out of spaces, into more decipherable characters than hieroglyphics, although not necessarily in English Language. A language so deep, yet so illogical. My honest opinion.

I love the way it doesn’t follow most of the times; as stubborn like a mule.

I am heavy hearted, & I wish my words would cheer me up but I find them not thus my rage. I am bereft of the verbal skill to lay hold of and partake of the healing milk they say writing gives. This amateur writer is blocked.

~Sirius~ said...

wow...

As I was reading, I saw a blank white sheet begin to fill with alphabets, then words; Sentences began to appear , over powering the void and emptiness, giving meaning to something that wasn't.....

Love your new template

Rita said...

Hope this is not one way of saying you wont update soon? :-) Tell me, apart from blogging what other stuff do you write?

Myne Whitman said...

bArOquE said...

~Sirius, you have succesfully made me blush...thanks for the compliment
...i like the new template too but something about isn't very satisfying

~Rita, this is NOT a way of saying i wont be updating soon
...to answer your question, i write letters, memos, reports, emails & ofcourse exams. LMAO
i may have written for a magazine or 2 in the past, besides that nothing...no book on the way, just yet

~MyneWhitman, the idea is that, i sat to write & couldnt quite find the words to express the way i felt about something that has been eating away at my soul...so i ended up writing something else

~kmplx...that can be arranged, but we have to 'test drive' the car before we buy it, dont we? i bet that can be arranged as well *wink*

~ibiLuv, e be like say na this blocked state go finally be the source of inspiration for the 'plenty english', if we gats make headway for this writing business abi? LOL

Maid of Heart said...

First time on this blog and blown to bits by this very fluid creativity. Thumbs up. Hope you feel better though.

AlooFar said...

"I love the way it doesn’t follow most of the times; as stubborn like a mule." Nice lines.

bArOquE said...

~MaidOfHeart, raises one eyebrow@fluid creativity...i feel a lot better now, thanks

~Aloofar, thanks...what about that line do you like?

cerberus said...

you have writers block but yet your keyboardmanship remains strong. Must be the swanky new template.

me likey mucho

greetings from key west bro

Miss Natural said...

first things, I like this template. TBH i was getting tired of the old one :) (these are my confessions lol). Then live but also give yourself time, you can combine the two successfully you know. Your living experiences can bring new writing perspectives and when you're back with your writing mojo it'll be like you never left in the first place. How are you?

kmplx said...

:-) cute... comparing yourself to a car.

bArOquE said...

~cerberus, LOL@keyboardmanship being strong...thanks

~kmplx, comparing myself to a car...???

i found my reason for writing somewhere in here...never gave it much thought until i read this.

you've got the gift man, and against your needless modesty, it flows like milk down the refridgerator door.

rethots said...
