Why I Write

 

To me, writing isn’t a want. It’s a need, as much as lungs begging for oxygen maybe even more. This need, she demands me to share my racing thoughts, to express my pain, to voice my joy. I can never quench her need, she comes back time and time again forcing my hand to pick up the pen and tell my story. Sometimes I wonder what life would be like without her. What if she was passive and her love affair with the pen didn’t burn with passion? I wonder what would it be like to sleep through the night without her pleading to share just one more story. When I ponder of life without her, she wrangles my heart and reminds me, “we are one.” One and the same her and I, this need is I and her love affair with the pen is mine. Together we will always be, a flaming desire to tell my thoughts and share my voice.

  1. Hi Stephanie, I commented this to your “ Lessons Death ……” but I was not able to post it …??? One thought on “The Lessons Death Taught Me”

    Danuška FEBRUARY 15, 2018 AT 7:51 PM …AND BEAUTIFULLY SCRIPTED …

    L1-Would your heart still ache if you knew that your loved one who passed is presently enjoying his/her beingness in another realm much more then here in a aching, painfull physical, biological body ?

    L2- I very much agree that HAPPINESS IS A CHOISE … “JOY AND HAPPINESS AND LAUGHTER, JOY AND HAPPINESS AND DREAMS, JOY AND HAPPINESS AND LAUGHTER ARE CREATING EVERYTHING WITH EASE…” ( out of my song…)

    L- 3 Yes and yes… ones we are learning to ACCEPT AND LOVE OURSELVES being HAPPY then and only then we’ll be able to love and make others happy too …

    L- 4 Sometimes only a little smile I see in other face can make my day …
