The Key to Good Reading and Writing...



One cannot live
on reading and writing alone
To make these relevant
a lot of real life
needs to be done...


 ...so the stack on my night-stand keeps growing:)


We need to be
Shoved,
Loved
Hurt,
Hugged
Needed,
Snubbed,
Weary-to-the bone
Sometimes together
Sometimes alone


We need to get dirty
Again and again
Put on something pretty
And be undressed with pain

We need to be praised
And stumble-humbled
We need to stand tall
Like a wall
And crumble

Pause
Because
If we don’t we’ll miss
The quiet kiss
Of Time
We need to let go
Of fear
To climb

We need to hold on,
Fall apart
Feel the reel of
A broken heart
Then when we read
And write we can feel
The heart and soul
Of ink-appeal
