Poetry

I write …

I write to breathe calmly

         to distract myself from real thoughts

         describing truth disguised as fiction

         creating alternative dimensions for my mind

          so to escape my stationary body

 I write to breathe calmly

         to distract myself from real pain

          relaxing an overworked heart and mind

          to numb the throbbing in my chest

          relieving these symptoms of living

I write to breathe calmly

                          I write

                               I write

                                     I write some more

                                           And finally feel free.
