Edging towards metaphorical, but never quite getting there.

Edging towards Metaphorical

by davorite

I'm not a poet.

But I still drip with translucent teal envy, twitching,

for the words of music, the song of speech

captured by the deft hands of a philosopher and by the gentle soul of a genius.

Finding in them artists, unmistakable talents.

Finding in them a contagious desire, a tangible want, an absolute need: to create new meanings out of words rather than to simply rearrange old ones.

Yet, here I sit.

Uninspired.

Inarticulate.

Unhappy.

Impatient.

The only thing I can do, it seems,

is be dramatic.

But it is the struggle of every writer,

edging towards metaphorical.
