    I woke up one morning
    With a pen in my hand and paper on my bed
    I realized
    I have thoughts, words and visions in my head
    If I don’t write them out they’ll be words never said
    I grabbed the pen and committed a sin
    For I worshipped my paper and pen
    My surroundings went up like vapor
    I didn’t stop the writing until later
    Later in the night
    Yes- it was night but my room remained bright
    The words of love, pain and fright had ignite
    The part of Bola that loves to write

    Much thanks to paper and pen.

    ***WRITING AND CRYING***

    i'm writing now
    when i should be in bed
    but instead
    i write and write and write
    only on paper does my world seem right
    once i lift my pen off the paper
    once my thoughts vanish like vapor
    i cry because i'm sad
    no one's made me mad
    no one's hurt me
    no one's here to bother me
    but still i cry
    because i don't understand this world...
    unless i'm writing
    and when i stop... i'm crying



    since they r both short i decided not to waste space:D and they're both similar too

    I call it sins of the scribe
    when all the fatigue inthe world
    does not aid your quest for sleep
    when all the explanations bring not
    understanding...
    when the pen and the paper
    are but masters of your disguise
    and when you can't write you can only cry
    the sins of the scribe has engulfed us all
    But write on sista Bola...this is your call


    The Dreamer.
