so i used to write so that
i could breathe.

To write

i want to write and write
and write
but why-i thought id dwell today.
I doubted if it was- for attention.
nope- it isnt
because i dont write on usual topics
my poems are not meant to be sung.

i used to write because there was no
other place to go to
with that much in me
but to sit here
on my desk
and type on

the fingers and the diaphragm
moving in tandem.

why do i write now-
why why why?
i have something to say
and i havent been able to
not in a way i would have liked too
but still
its also because
these words are my feathers
and this verse
my flight.

Right on the money!!

Now I have discovered you, and my world is a little more curious, a little more exciting, a little more wonderful! There is a tone of voice in the poems by you I have read, that really talks to me! You have a light touch that moves me, far!

That last couplet is phenomenal. Good job!

Indeed, what is inside must come out, my sentiments exactly.
