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.


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!)

- R. D. P.
