To Write

February 12, 2016



To write
Is to dictate your life
Lives of the past
Lives in the future

To write
Is to make the sheer complexity
Of your fear, your misery, your joy
Simple for the bespectacled stranger

To write
Is to share what's rightfully yours
To betray your own privacy
With professions of love
Of loss and life
Without any real understanding of any of it
Stumbling blindly through poems and page numbers

To write
Is to part yourself
From the mundane bustle
Of day to day life
And settle at  the trunk of Autumn’s first casualty
To reflect on the beauty
And the tragedy of it all

To write
is to thank and curse
your callus reality
in a wilful bid
For freedome
