words spill from my lips
like a water fountain in crimson red

there is so much i want to say, always
my tongue like a reel of film

ripped down the center;
writing makes me feel unique

in a way that living does not.
writing makes me feel invincible,

sometimes, and at other times
fragile and breakable and soft.

writing makes me feel.
i am a poet because

i don't know how to be anything else.
