Hey there! I’m Afrah, and here’s the new ‘Fridays With Afrah’ poem and conspiracy. This poem is about how I feel when I write and as a writer. I hope you enjoy!
The ink drips from my pen,
as I forge the words I never thought a mind as simple as mine could.
A whole universe lies at my mere fingertips.
I allow them to repaint everything.
Everything I am, everything I was,
repainted by the words that so willingly dance across the pages,
obeying my every wish.
Every single one coming from the wildfires
that run ever so readily in my mind.
The ashes engulf me whole
and revive me every day.
