I craft life

In waves of uncertainty

As if yesterday

Were so different

From today.

I escape truth

Write words

One after the other

Until I forget to breathe.

Stay sane

Through knowing


At some point

Will relent

But it won’t be me.

Tears I’ve wasted

One with your name

Became fuel for me.

I create life

In words

Crafted with hands

Felt with a heart

Said with a mouth

Heard with an ear

Tasted by those

Wanting to hear a song

Only I know how to sing.
