The Paper Cut — A poem by Cynthia Millsap

The paper cut

The story seeped into my blood

And my blood seeped into the story

An exchange occurred

An oath so powerful the story and the teller became one

Now my life is tied to the story and it to me

And until I die I will write it

I will write it

I will write it

And through me it will live

It will live

It will live

The paper cut my soul

 

This is the story of my life right now. I’ve been working on projects, writing new plots, developing characters, editing, and rewriting. I’ve also been reading, which is surprisingly important for the creative process. I have yet to give up. I have had some successes and many failures, but until there is an end I will continue to write, for the stories are still alive within me.

 

~ Until Next time
