PROMPT: Why I Write

8
i write because it lights the slow, red burning of the endless flame -
my words, the stringing together of sentences like fairy lights.
one, two, three and they glow in glorious harmony.

i write because the saltwater waves just keep on crashing in,
stinging my open cuts and striking scars.
and ink and paper binds my torn skin like glue.

i write because it is the very edge of something new, something daring,
and my legs are weak. i have never walked to that edge before,
but i can touch it with a semi-colon,
cross it with a comma.

i write because all my dreams are curbed by a cursor.
