"One Line"
You consider yourself inspired
When a line pops into your head.
You rush to write it down,
afraid it will escape from your fingers
into an abyss of the unknown.
It comes too quickly
For even the fastest of writers,
because inspiration hits
Like a bolt of lightning in a storm
And can be just as powerful.
One line can change a rhyme,
A place,
A mood,
A face,
And shape space and time.
A line can transcend
Even the toughest of stories
And make it a masterpiece,
One worthy of reading
Over and over again.
It can be a trusted friend
You'll never leave behind
Because it was your greatest work
Of all time.
