Most of the creatives pain is self-inflicted. He creates his own destruction and he destroys his own creations.

He rubs honey on his gaping wounds to pretend that they’re not there. He creates paintings, poems, songs and other works to cover up what’s coming undone. He writes in hopes the ink will cover up the tracks of his tears.

He creates to take away the pain he has created.

It’s cyclical.

By Cole Schafer.

One day these one minute writings will be a big book called “One Minute, Please.” Can I let you know when that day comes?

You can say yes, here.
