My Wailing Whispering Pen

PROMPT: Why I Write

Gasping, dragging, bleeding, 
Ragged breaths upon the page,
Desperate thoughts, crying to be told,
Life, taken from me, drawn into words,
I, at last find the words,
I make the pain I feel, fit onto the page.
The tears of many sleepless nights, 
At last are written down,
The fears of my heart,
Open on the page,
The screaming of my soul, 
whispers from my pen.
I fall back,
Tired eyelids droop, and sleep,
Knowing at last my mind is written down.

    That last line! Stunning! I loved reading this because it's almost exactly how I feel when I write my rather crazy pieces :)
