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.
