I write because it hurts when I don’t.

I want nothing else out of it than that it got written. I will take out of it nothing but that.

Those who truly know me don’t need this page to know about me.

Those who don’t know me and don’t care to, feel free to assume the worst, as you have always done, as you always will. That way, you won’t have a clue what I’m here for nor understand what I’m writing about, so what you think and say and do won’t mean a thing.

Those who don’t know me but are open enough to care to, I’m nothing special, but feel free to reach out and touch. Even if you walk away, you’ll never lose my love and never leave my thoughts.

    Clarior e tenebris is the motto on my family’s (Purves) coat of arms.

    Happy to see it is the title of your blog.

  4. Namaste,

    cyber wind
    tossed me here
    hear to this
    dot touching dot
    where does this bridge go
    anyone’s guess
    we are gold
    in the sun
    silver moonshine
    when the roses bloom
    at midnight

    “I want nothing else out of it than that it got written.” I can’t tell you how much those words dug into me and nestled inside like an old friend. Thank you for writing.

    Loved your page, especially the first two lines.
    “I only write because it hurts when I don’t”! There cant be a better way of expressing your passion to write. .
    I am also keen to invite you to my blog (link below), which is actually just fresh off the oven.
    Look forward.
    I am following you:)

  9. This confused soul, a linearly literal processor, is choosing to follow your blog. I figure if I read enough good poetry, the day may come when I finally “get it.” Thanks for indirectly supporting my cause. 🙂

  10. Mike says:

    I’m pleased to have come across this blog and your comprehensive works.

  11. I never thanked you for visiting and following my blog. I’d like to do that now. 🙂 Liking your poetry a lot by the way.

    “I write because it hurts when I don’t.” This expresses perfectly my own experience. You capture in a few words a writer’s drive. Thanks for the follow.

    • If I ever get to the day when I stop writing and act like I have found a painless peace without it, please feel at liberty to shoot me, because I’ll already be dead anyway. If I were willing to trade it in for anything at all, I would cease to be myself. Thanks for reading. Cyn

        Keep writing. “If anything can keep you from writing, then let it. If nothing can keep you from writing, then by all means, write.” (E.L. Doctorow?? Not sure the attribution.)

        • Thanks, but the first line of that is not for me. If anything at all keeps me from writing, it’s not anything I want to let keep me. Even what might call itself love. Any love that is true is going to know me well enough to inspire the writer in me all the more. Any pretender to love that muffles the voice or interferes with the pen would only be a temporary indulgence in its selfish pleasure in taking me. I would wake up every morning cursing myself for giving into it and vow this would be the day I would kick it the hell out of my bed and start writing again. No, for me, in anything can keep me form writing, then shoot it before you shoot me for letting it. Cyn

    I, too, want to add my thumbs up for your eloquence in expressing a writer’s passion…”I write because it hurts when I don’t.”
