Jar Of Ink

He doesn't drink...

He gets high on the silent smell of books drunk on lignin...

The smell of wizards and dragons, of wars and love.

~

He is afraid of sharing emotions…

He spills them on crumpled papers like a mess…

With a jar of ink to make it look less messy.

~

He has a heart of ice…

Unheard and unperceived...

That melts every-time it rains.

~

He is a mad being...

Roaming around the city, telling people about Magic…

And waiting for them to believe it.

~

He tells lies everyday…

On empty pages...

Sometimes to give them hope and dreams…

And sometimes to scratch their souls.
