Paper … White and Clean


Paper … White and Clean

A blank piece of paper, white and clean

No written words has it ever seen

Until … I come along, feel the need to write on it

 

I sit, close my eyes to see

In my mind what I want to write about me

Decide do I want to draw or write

 

My fingers begin typing merrily along

Words in my mind … sing song

Tapping my memories as they flow

 

From my mind just as rain falls from the sky

Words like drops splash on my page … oh my

The colors of my life

 

Grief, pain mostly what I know

I wish I could tell you it ain’t so

Life is what it is … no more or less

 

I don’t feel sorry for myself, nor stay down and out

Because it gives me stories to write about

I write stories for you to read making it a positive thing

 

To entertain, make you sad, glad … happy or cry

That’s what stories are for I think as I sigh

Yes, I give you a story as I get much needed release

 

We are both happy for it

As you read and I … typing words as I sit

That’s what readers, writers do!

 

My characters want to play

Giving me words they want to say

I’m doing what I love to do

 

Life-giving words to bring characters alive

As they walk, run, jump … even dive

I put the colors in their life as I paint with words

If my stories are sad

With words I can take away the bad

Making everyone happy once again

 

As they live the rest of their life happily

Ride off into the sunset as far as I can see

I let go … everything is alright once again

No longer is the paper white, clean

It’s colored with my words waiting to be seen

Beginning of story … all the way to The End
