Hidden behind my laptop screen
Tucked away from the world
Experiencing the wonders of the written word
I don’t experience the here and now
The sun is shining and I never knew
The day looks warm and peaceful
How do I balance experience with
Writing new worlds or reading about others?
There never seems to be enough time
To dwell on my writing and quench
My thirst for reading worlds already created
So much talent I have yet to experience
So many words I leave unwritten
How do I find balance?
