Writing and losing your voice. (Disclaimer: This piece is not about the Taylor Swift song! :D)

The Blank Space

Is the pen a tightrope to tiptoe between dreams and stars, to scribble bloodstreams agleam in my cigar-chars that spill scars, soaked in broken blank spaces –

zigzagged words that slur?

Now blood blurs, stirs between my ribcage and page – pastes the aftertaste of ink (sickened with my liquid dreams) streamed with starlight, yet the night

and the blank spaces always return.

(Aside) Hey, Commaful! This is a piece from a few days ago that I wrote and I decided to do some slight edits and show it to you all today. I hope you like the disclaimer in the description... It probably only made me giggle though! :D

This piece is definitely more abstract and I think it's important to stress that your reading is just as valid as my reading of my own work. :) This piece, to me, is about trying to write but ultimately being unable to and coming back to those blank spaces. There is more to it than that, but I hope that came through to some extent through the piece.

Let me know if it didn't make any sense but I suspect that this one is a bit tricky. There is some repetition here too, which I don't usually do, but I wanted to do it for continuity and to have clearcut imagery shift later in this short piece.

I hope that you enjoyed this one nonetheless, and thank you very much for reading! Take care, Commaful, and keep writing and staying safe! <3
