Opium Compulsive Prolific Writers - Poem by Terence George Craddock (afterglows echoes of starlight)

opium is a metaphor
for compulsive writing
prolific writers
be they poets
novelists dramatists
are writer addicts
compulsively addicted

to creative process
fishing hunting
caught words writing
is writ drug fix candy
stale writer's block
stump withdrawals

low no buzz

writing euphoric high
words lines mind images
are the trip the journey towards
completed themes concepts

poems stories plays
word addicts write
interpretation analysis
we may leave to readers critics

specific themes
styles emotive images
define concepts

may hook readers fans
who willingly come forth
to seek share written ride
