    Holy guacamole, Maher!

    Adding this to my favorites. Seriously. So many brilliant lines that could stand out on their own, especially this part, it made me stop for a moment:

    "It’s at times like these where the mind wanders
    into places so cavernous that even echoes,
    in all their intensity, lose their way."

    A piece about writer's block, yet writing the twists and turns and way your heart goes, everything that leads up to a poem along with our hesitancy and the confusion of emotions.

    There was clarity in this piece though, especially addressing what we repress, and the greed of glorifying words? YES. It makes me think of the battle of authenticity and our honest desire to be heard, yet how are we using and being molded by these words, by our very real fears?

    I just... wow. Am truly blown away by this. Never read anything quite like it. Thank you for sharing this, and of course, you are certainly not talking to yourself.
