Breathing

I write like I breathe. Almost, thoughtlessly, taking each word for granted because it's there. Like breathing, I need to write. I write poems, songs, stories, memoirs, plays. I pile words on top of each others in haphazard heaps, knowing only that I need to make them sound like bells, tinging away into silence and leaving that ineffable little mark in a person's mind as they strain to hear that last echo. I want my words to be like the whine of a crystal wine glass, as a wet finger is drawn across the rim. I want them to echo and echo and echo like an anguished cry across the mountains. I want to impose myself with that I, I, I, onto people who may not want my imposition. I want, in fact, to write.

I like the way you write. Instead of just getting the point across in as few, albeit wannabe poetic, words as possible like I do, you are able to not only write each sentence, but you can make it flourish. It's more like a colorful tapestry or a well-crafted song than a few words strung together to make a sensible thought.<br />
Yes, I wish I could write like you. :p

**clap** I really enjoy reading this. I can tell that you do infact write, and write well at that. Would love to chat sometime. Get to know one another in hopes of sparking my creative side again. Let me know. <br />

Until then, keep up the good writing.
