it is this fountain pen

you see

that is responsible

my Hogwarts wand

flowing words onto the paper

my words slowly shaped

no others like them

sometimes they line up

jostling to flow

to get out

coming faster

jumbled into an unreadable mess

i could use a keyboard

i am a fast typer

but i would lose the feel of the words

flowing onto blank white paper

giving me time to think

and to feel

showing me the way ahead
