"What is a poet? An unhappy person who conceals profound anguish in his heart but whose lips are so formed that as sighs and cries pass over them they sound like beautiful music."

"Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion; it is not the expression of personality, but an escape from personality. But, of course, only those who have personality and emotions know what it means to want to escape from these things."- TS Elliot

Writing is a form of expression that you can very openly express yourself with absolutely no inhibitions. Stringing together words is an art, but unlike most others, it can be easily learned. The only paint and brush you need is inspiration and perhaps a sprinkle of creativity. So if I tweak the famous quote in my all time loved movie Ratatouille, I believe, Anybody can write!  

Written expression for me is a lamp light, leading me through a dark road and lighting many new discoveries that I may have never discovered before. It's the outlet of all the feelings muddled up inside me and my way of letting go of thoughts and feelings and cloud my heart. When my mind seeks peace but finds none, nor any source to provide it, I turn to poetry, where the patter of words instills tranquility in my mind. When my mind is racing with thoughts of possibilities and outcomes, penning down a good story always helps me let it out.

I love playing with words and reading the works of others who've done the same. I personally feel that this is a corner of the World Wide Web where us artists can express ourselves..

...And so will I.

Live long and prosper-
