Tears Of Joy - Poem by Leslie Ching

I want
To write.

I want to feel
The soft-tipped pen
Glide across
The crisp, clean sheet of new paper
Behold the fine, curving black letters
Let them seep through me,
Engulf me
To become one of their own.

I want to dream of
Impossible fantasies
Intoxicate myself
With passionate words,
Indulge in the sea of knowledge
And come to a quiet
And peaceful

When I wake
I want to feel my wet cheeks
And realize
That all this time
I have been crying
Not tears of sadness
But tears of joy
