Hi guys! Any reviews, likes, comment, questions, or suggestions, are welcome and appreciated! I actually did write this piece in the dark at 2 am in the back of a shopping list :)

FREE WRITING

7
Sometimes its hard to be a writer.
When the words start to pile up at 2 am,
and the voices in your head start screaming to be let out.
So you toss away any notion of sleep,
with a fistful of covers.
As you scramble for a pen,
and the back of a crumpled piece of paper.
ignoring the light switch
you know you won’t be able to find.
Crouching on the one patch of floor lit by the stars.
And you write.
The words flow so fast you’re no longer sure what your writing, 
but you have to get it down to appease the voices yelling in your head. 
Eventually you run out of paper.
So you scribble words onto the backs of your hands and up your arms.
Palaces grow and oceans destroy at each bend of your knees.
Old Gods die and new ones rise on the bottoms of your feet.
And when you're done,
when the voices have gone silent,
and your heart stops racing,
you crawl back to bed exhausted.
And tomorrow you won’t remember what you wrote.
The few scraps of paper will tell only half the story.
The rest has faded into your skin.
A story only you will know. 
You and the stars.

    @mrcolinredwards I am so sorry you are having writers block. I know the feeling all to well! I hope you get some ideas soon! Remeber that writing, even if it seems "bad", is better then not writing at all!!

    Wow, this is great! My favorite line was probably "Crouching on the one patch of floor lit by the stars."

    Oh my God, this somewhat describes what's been happening to me lately! See, I've hit a bit of a rough patch because I got writer's block on my latest chapter and I'm torn if I should continue with it or go back to revise my old Peter Pan story to apply what I've learned in my college course. Now, all I do is go into my notes, while keeping Write The World. com up and kick around ideas as I write. I've been feeling pretty lost lately, about what I should do, and if I should visit Write The World.com (where I should be doing my writing I feel). However, now I see that I'm not the only one. Thank you so much for understanding what it's like to be me! Liking this!

    Wow!! Not only a gorgeous poem, but I can relate to that soo much! (have been waking up at 2 a.m. every night for a week now!) I love the line "The words flow so fast you’re no longer sure what your writing," also :DDDD
    Fantastic! <3 :DDD
