Do You Feel The Burning? - Poem by Terence George Craddock (afterglows echoes of starlight)

do you feel
the burning
burning desire

to write
enflaming
heart engulfing

senses?

bursting
into spontaneous
combustion

I do not
smoulder
I write

I hear not
my voice
when writing

I am too
busy writing
to listen

with so many
pathos styles themes
voices to hear

I do not listen
to my own voice writing
there are too many

other voices
to waiting hear
quick listen

other voices

murmuring
whispering
shouting

to hear

quick listen
