My Journey As A Writer is a poem written and shared by Suchismita Ghoshal to The Ugly Writers under the theme Love for the month of May. 


My Journey As A Writer


The darkness wrapped me in,

and choked me until I gasped to death.

This was the time when writing

escalated through my heart

and I escaped from the darkness.

I turned into a nomad from then,

I swam the ocean of quotes,

traveled from the countries of verses

to the valleys of poems and then

found myself in a boat crossing

the river of gullible metaphors.

I loved the air scribbling serene

in my body, the nature embedding

pearls on my hair, the mountains

whispering the words of knowledge,

the birds giggling the scrawls of my

exhilarated heart, the flowers brushing

away the sacrilegious intentions

and the stars scintillating my name

as a writer on the wide night sky.

My quest ended on the abode of peace

where my creations played, danced

and pranced around with the books

I kept them pressed during my

courageous journey of self-inquisition.

Write, write, write and write

until the milestones seem little,

and my heart will keep on voyaging

until my journey gets the title of ‘forever’.
