Reading Between the Lines

Unfurl the Scroll,
Reading between the lines,
We all speak in knots,
Have the stories caught your fancy?
That’s because words have power,
twisted commas and exclamation marks,
Catching you and bringing your thoughts close,
Repeat the Mantra,
Let the Quill burn along the page,
Create a world that’s alongside your own,
Watch now, you feel your dreams changing,
Immersed in a vision,
Reality becomes clearer, Chaos dances around the Natural Order,
Karmic response after delay, the dam breaks and pushes forward,
Nature illustrates the emotions quite well,
Tears stain the parchment,
Let the anger out, let it vent and crest in the heart,
Turn the corner, fight the tide,
Pages stuck together,
Refill the ink and start over again,
Rewrite emotions, faces, and every moment,
Do it for the stars,
Caught up in the heavens,
Breathlessly shouting on deaf ears,
Show the world how real the Old Ways are,
Let the Magick pour from the shadows,
Be resilient! In this Book,
The pen is mightier than the sword,
Fiction is no longer on the shelf,
We rise! they cheer straight into a secret universe,
Voices reaching out to the Gods,
Circular abandon, Clockwise,
Caught between those realms,
Serving the need beyond the self,
Editing  language so we can communicate,
The message is there, reaching my climax,
Letting the tale unfold as it will,
Record, Scribe, report true,
This story is bigger than you!
