An energy surges through me,
A lightning bolt of words,
Touching everything from the top of my head
To the tip of my toes.

I scramble to put them on paper,
All the thoughts in my head,
Because I know that, like a wave crashing,
They will soon be back in the sea of unknown.

This feeling I get when composing
Is what makes me a writer,
Because a true writer doesn’t want to write,
She needs to.
