From deep inside where demons and dreams reside,
a vision seeks to be poured onto a page,
not with paint or colors, but words.
Quieting my anxious self,
Releasing perfection to allow an escape,
they surface on the screen
as if by some magician’s alchemy.
At times, they stare at me
in gratitude of liberation,
issued from my being
to linger elsewhere.
But mostly they smile,
Winking a challenge.
Prodding me beyond complacency,
appealing for more.
I chose to write,
a wise and wondrous employment.
I now keep company with words
And give them a place to dwell.
