Second attempts

This is my first real try at writing. A lot of this has been in my head for a while but as part of a larger second attempt i thought i would try something new, actually writing them down. Read them if you like, or don't, i won't mind either way.


7. Literary Genii

This planet of ours possesses some incredible writers
Whisperers of words who can carry you away with a flick of ink on paper
It is easy to become lost, stumbling through their dark days
And it is a joy to become caught in their treasured memories and dreams
What you feel is of no consequence, they are leading the story
Grabbing you by the hand and pulling you through
Spinning threads of sorrow that can bring the barren to tears 
Or move gentle men to uncontrollable rage
They can take you on incredible journeys
And draw laughter lines in wrinkles along your face
To read is to see
A slice of perspective from a mind with so many
They can glimpse stars in the eyes of the shattered
And destinations in the maps the rest of us are not yet brave enough to read
Their words can raze fear to the ground
And raise hope to the clouds
Filling the emptiness with neon street signs, strawberry milkshakes and mismatched china cups
They have the power to make a prison feel like a stepping stone
And the hopeless feel like kings
With just a few lines they can bring about a smile
Or a gleam in the iris of a splintered soul


I read their musings over and over

Because although some great writers may not believe their words can change the world 

What they don't realise 

Is that they've already lit up mine
