The art of words (Why I Write)

I like words

To pin them in my head;

repeat them like mantras

apply them where I can

throw them into thoughts

small prose, poetry

ways to express

the catacalysmic feelings

of being alone

in a fight with

adversity;

mental illness;

the feeling of dread;

not wanting to start the day;

the loss of mentality;

something, some facet

to use adjectives in the right way

synonyms

with precision to express

some way for someone to understand

even if the someone

happens to be

myself;

the art of words

the art of condensation

This poem is about: 
Me
