The Writer's Grip

A white page with black letters.

Seems simple enough

to acknowledge that literary power

can literally be too much

to withstand. Too much to resist.

So much that we willingly submit

to the thoughts put forth by another,

our minds firmly in the writer's grip.

Enjoying the journey, expanding the mind

and probably losing track of time.

Looking for jewels in between the lines

because our vision of the struggle is blind.
