I use poems to tell my thoughts when normal words won't do
To express my inner, darker sides that I'm afraid of too
It feels like in my darkest times, my words come best in rhyme
And sometimes, when I write these words, the darkness fills less time
Poetry is my escape when nothing else succeeds
Poems take my breaking heart and give it room to breathe
So if you ask me why I write, why poems mean so much
I'll simply tell you that it helps me keep myself in touch.
