My

Dream

Is

To

Write

.

 

But not just write.

 

I want to

 

W

R

I

T

E

 

.

 

In the elongated,

Lifestylistic,

Financially illiterate,

Coffee drinking,

Misunderstood,

Brooding,

moody

Sense of the word.

 

I  don’t just want words on a page.

 I want the

little

in-between

bits.

 

The late night character forming sessions

The tortured plot choices

The use of a typewriter in order to improve spelling

The trashing of said typewriter because my spelling does,

And always will,

Suk. (damn you auto correct!)

The frustrated spouse

The curious children

The dip of toes into a pool of cool insanity

the writers hang out where all participants sit on uncomfortable chairs quietly sipping espressos in a crappy, one room apartment that Josh rented for 6 months to finish his latest novel in.

sip sip

Sop.

 

Glamour? No.

Fame? No.

recognition? Welp, that’d be nice, but no.

 

I just want words.

And all that comes with them.

 

My dream is to write

 And to struggle to realize my dream.

I’m a cynical optimist,

But it’s okay with me.

 

 

I don’t know much grammar

And I use commas wrong all, the, time.

But the ink pours out of my veins

Which I think

Is what

Happens

To those

Who were born to write

So I’ma just write

And if what I compose

moves

even

 one

 then

I’ve done

All I can do.
