    Dammit
    By Monad.poetress


    Dammit don't you see I'm trying to write this book
    You know how hard it is and how long it took
    You complain all day and all **** night
    But hell this book has to be just right
    I know sometimes i zone out and forget you are here
    But dammit this book will be finished by the end of the year
    Its hard to explain what this book means to me
    Its a vision I saw long ago and now its coming to be
    So dammit go in the other room and watch one of your shows
    Cause I can't stop the words once the juices start to flow
    Dammit don't you see its uncontrollable once it starts
    Its like the words just spurt and pour right out my heart
    So don't ask me again to put down my pen
    I told you once and I'll tell you again
    I have to write this book
    I know I need to clean, be mom, and cook
    But this book is a part of me, its just like one of my bones
    So I close my bedroom door and turn off the phones
    Cause dammit this book will get done
    So if you have to feel free to run
    I know you feel lonesome like you live here alone
    But what do I have if this book deal goes wrong
    So please remeber all the tears and all the years it took
    And just let me finish this book

    It's not easy being driven to write, but the intensity does lessen at times thank goodness, or we would all feel forever on the verge. Your words hit with force.
