The Ache in my Wrists

Location

 

I bypass clichés

and utilize trite statements

sing out verbs

and describe adjectives 

this is my method

amidst the madness

with a world of everything

I refuse to feel like nothing

so I take the pain and write the stories, I live vicariously

I detail these tales as if I'd seen them

and create the characters of those I've known and those I want to be

and sometimes I even dare to create out of nothing

a world so new, so bold

I write to create, to break the rules

and in all the pain, I can smile once

because I'm a writer bleeding words

and one of those words will spell

s-m-i-l-e

And with that, with that I can endure the ache in my wrists

I'm free.
