The white paper
Is illuminated by the
Glow of the moonlight.
It’s wrinkles and edges
Appear to be perfect
With its flaws.

As I search for words
To give form 
To the thoughts that
Fight desperately to be heard.
My pencil begins to
Move ever so gracefully,
Bringing thoughts and emotions to life.

That moment of liberation,
When the pencil meets
The surface of the paper,
Is second to none.
That peace!

I can feel myself
Releasing all the bottled up
Thoughts and feelings,
And see them materialising
Right before my eyes.

It’s like the feeling of
Ice cold water
Trickling down your parched throat,
On a hot summer day,

Or the feeling of your
Paintbrush creating gentle strokes,
That result in a beautiful image,
Capturing a moment in time.

Writing is not a talent,
It’s just a different way
Of breathing.

“There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.”

― Ernest Hemingway
