Have you ever spent a couple hours really digging deep and putting together a playlist as soundtrack…there’s a trip! Stealing someone else’s words to try to bring a little bit of meaning into the chaos.
How about bleeding with your pen…really bleeding. Blame the stars, the moon, the gods, the devils, but these roller coaster rides are rough, gut wrenching, frightening, and absolutely glorious in the fodder they give your pen. Always I am prompted back to my secret safe of soul crying journals. As pathetic as I may have seemed at the time…they are proof that the ride does end…and you do get to take a breather before the carnie pulls the lever to send you loopy again.
So…I invite you to enjoy the chaos, ride the rails, and hold on with everything you have. We’re bleeding poetry…the real deal…and we’re paying homage to the power of the words that matter most to us…our own.
Tonight, good Poets…let’s bleed it out…got me some Linkin Park on deck, and I’m ready to hit the bottom of this poetic bottle.
Happy National Poetry Month Wordbenders!
