Words

Write something.
Anything.
Just get the thoughts out.

Spill them onto these blank screens
and plaster the world with
your faulty words,
your flawed ideas
that hold together each breath,
each step because without them,
you are empty.

Without them,
you are lost among forests of stories
sprouting up through dirty lines
of mishmashed text,
of broken verses
winding their way up your walls
and tearing cracks in the foundation
you crafted so carefully.

Just write something
so that it all goes back inside.

Let it out so that it’s gone
instead of trapped,
so that your voice isn’t
scarred or silent.

So that the world can
relish your aching
the way you savor
your suffering.

Just write. Something.

~Patience
