Writing Is The Easy Part
written by: John Patrick Robbins
I remember you asked me long ago, "Where do you get your ideas?"
As if I had some answer to this process that others far better suited could not explain themselves.
"I have no idea sweetheart I just pen them as they come to me".
I couldn't say how I created, It was just part of me for so long I really had no control over it.
Much like insanity it thrives in the chaos.
"You need to be writing John".
"I need a drink kid, And I need you in my bed", I said putting my hand on her thigh.
"You already have me".
She replied as we sat there in the sand listening to the waves crashing into the shore.
I hadn't written a damn thing in a while, I was happy in my life knowing that storm on the horizon would soon enough have me seeking shelter.
And knowing that I would be alone once again.
I pen these pages now in the depths of a place where creation is easy but life is not.
Writing is never the hard part of our existence and if it is you're not meant to write.
Truth like a good storm can never be ignored.
The page holds no mystery.
It simply bares the fruit of a storm ravaged existence.
