The words flow from my head into the pen.

What my mouth cannot convey, the newly covered paper can.


Emotions and feelings fuel what I write.

I know someone, somewhere can identify with the words I put down.


This, this is my escape.

The darkness, anger, hurt, they all go away once written.


Just letting out how I feel.

It is what I needed, what I have craved for so, so long.


It doesn't matter the audience,

whether one person or one hundred people read, I will be happy.


It isn't about the fame or glory.

It is about allowing feelings and ideas and thoughts to be expressed,


To be expressed in a new way.

A way special to me, but also special to hundreds out there.


Poetry, that is what I needed.

My  thoughts have flown through the pen, to the paper,


And now I am done.
