Writing is an art

Writing is an art

Writing is an art

But there is no spark

when it just becomes a part

of life’s routine benchmark

 

Drugged upon passion

With soulless enthusiasm

My craft I refashion

Like a fake orgasm

Why they ask

Do I not feel

In my job to bask

What is the deal?

 

Writing is an art

But I tell you, there is no spark

when it just becomes a part

of life’s routine benchmark

So, here is what it is

The misfortune of Writers

They don’t feel the fizz

Without pens as their fighters

But a 9-to-5 binds them

Where struggles grind all

Creativity to condemn

Upon the boss’s call

 

This is why writing is an art

But there is no spark

when it just becomes a part

of life’s routine benchmark

A story for the wanderlust

That lives like millions today

Coz we do what we must

Leaving our desires astray

 

And so I say writing is an art

But there is no spark

when it just becomes a part

of life’s routine benchmark

 

My ink bleeds blue

On paper so cold

The thought of you

Is new but now old

Sometimes, you have to just stand out

to make your voice heard

to rule out any doubt

and spread your wings like a bird

 

I repeat writing is an art

But there is no spark

when it just becomes a part

of life’s routine benchmark

 

Drugged upon doubts

I stumble on a riot

Caused among droughts

Like a patient’s bland diet

So, what am I doing here?

Should I follow my dreams?

Controlled by a puppeteer

I am mindless, it seems

But cut my veins low

To bleed without retreat

Let the ink flow

Until life’s journey is complete

 

Because writing is an art

But there is no spark

when it just becomes a part

of life’s routine benchmark
