Write, I told myself Write, or you'll go to pieces I already feel broken Shattered and empty What can I write about This. Here. Now. All that you see All that you feel. Write it, to maintain your sanity. But it's too painful. Still. Let the anguish out Drain the fear Cut open the sorrow Empty out the despair Pen them down Put them into words Place them front and centre Don't let them remain shadowy wraiths Only in the light can you examine them closely Only when you see it in black and white can you know what you actually feel Only wording them out can show you what you truly believe Only broken honesty can help you really heal. So write. Even if you don't feel like it. (Especially if you don't feel like it!) Write. - R. D. P.
