I Wish I Could Paint

I’m sitting here.

Sizzling with creative power, feeling it prickle in my hands and body, urging me to create something wonderful, something that resonates with what I’m feeling right now.

Words have always been my go-to thing when I’ve felt like this in the past.

But this time…

This time, I’m beyond.
