Torment of a writer

I see through too many eyes
Hear too many thoughts,
Screaming loud lies
Leaving me distraught
Telling me go this way
No that way instead!
These conflicting people
living inside my head.

I covered my ears
and prayed for rest
from these demons
on their maddened quest
But the voices within
just can't be quelled
So deep down inside me
The madness now swelled.

My trembling hands
took a life of their own
And they flew over paper
as the voices did moan.
The tales tumbled out
with exuberant glee
As the characters escaped
unfettered and free.

After twelve hours straight
and my head a-spin
My fingers aching
and my face a-grin
I breathed a deep sigh,
sat back in my chair.
The voices and eyes
were no longer there.

Have a great day/night all!

Birthing a piece of writing is just that ... great pain, but in the hope of a lively offspring. Nicely written my friend.

When writing comments to a poem, I always try to set apart my personal views about a given subject and evaluate the poem on its merits alone.

I like the flow, rhyming and rhythm. Your wording is precise and the mood is dark, as you probably intended it to be.

As for what you discribe as the torment you're going through while "giving bith" to a piece - I guess this is an individual experience. I rather enjoy the pains of writing a new poem/story/novel, I'm quite obssesed with it, but there are no lies, demons or conflicting directions.
