Your heart may bleed diamonds,
but they all they see is dust.
Your soul may run black with ink,
yet they see it as pandemonium.
The miasmas you feel in your mind are not discord,
but a precious, beautiful gift meant solely for you.

The letters care not
however you arrange them;
perfection is perfection
when it comes from your veins.

These worlds exist for you created them
there is no such thing as
as long as you know their universes.

Cry and laugh and weep and smile,
for the blossoms you water shall grow
into a microcosm of your own design.

You are a god and a king,
a queen and a demon,
whose words shall turn
heartstrings to gold.

Freedom is the only chain you must break in half,  
life is the only prison you must escape from,
and the truth is the only lie you must forget.

Vengeful phantoms in a corporeal form walk the earth;
humanity will spite you for you let
the words bleed out on paper so thin
they dripped onto arid deserts
and a garden bloomed across the stars.

Murder the passion—
worship the fool—
embrace the torment—
loath the innocence

There is no wrong…just write.
To all those writers out there who feel like what they're doing isn't "right."

Just let everything go and do what you want.

Writing is about expression. Writing is about your enjoyment.

Don't ever let anyone tell you otherwise.

A free verse assignment for creative writing...the last bit is actually my teacher's philosophy for writing and I just love it to death. I honestly will use it as long as I continue writing.
