why I write


so here you are
you must really want to know
why I write

funny thing is
It makes me want to ask
why you breathe

but let's discuss
this question that I have posed
why I write

my stock answer
all these years, has been the same
it's cheaper than therapy

let's go deeper
you and I, let's delve into
why I write

strings of words
rise up
from the deepest parts
of me

leaving the darness
fleeing the night
running for light
hoping for air

searching for freedom
finding an ear
floating among us
for all to see

why is it that I write
maybe you were right
it's not about the words
but it is cheaper than therapy
