Insightful and yes...I for one, have the same thoughts. There are times in those seeking moments for that perfect word/phrase, that I feel tormented. However...you put it well in your last sentence and believe you speak for every writer. Good Job!

Gift or Disease--love that title! I enjoyed reading this piece and it made me wish I knew how to write a decent poem.
There is a strange agony in a thougth beyond our reach or a word that just won't come. But then the dam breaks, the words rush forth, and it's so very, very worth the struggle along the way. Never give up!
Loved the title. I've oftened wondered whether writing is a gift or disease. Good job and keep writing.

Really well done; it drew me in, kept me there, and the dichotomy was palpable. Great job!
Good job in writing this poem. I identify myself with your thoughts. "The writer's life... I want to make it mine." I specially want to claim this statement you wrote for myself. Be of good courage, fellow writer!
