I write poetry.
I’m no poet
with a sense of rhyme or alliteration
or how words should sound.
No sonnets here!
But writing a sentence or forming a paragraph
is beyond me.
I can’t write what I’m feeling.
I can’t analyze it. I can’t face it.
So I write poetry.
I write what I want,
no thoughts of sentences
cut off unwanted thoughts,
making them freer on the next line.
How does that work?
I can’t face who I am right now
except through poetry.
JOURNAL: Who am I? What do I feel? Express yourself in poetry.
