i write to combat loneliness
at times i’m so wrapped up in my own musings
only the feeling of taking the pen to the page
can ease the pressure of my own thoughts
therein lies another battle
when the words on the page don’t seem to conform
to the storm brewing within my mind
so instead of a painter’s stroke
the pen becomes a knife tearing into the paper
ink bleeds through to stain new opportunities
it is a wonder how i haven’t thrown the whole mess
into the fire
i write to combat loneliness
and fight the demons begging to be my friend
