Only When I Write


 

 

Writing

Only when I write

Only when I write

Can I challenge myself

To empty myself

out onto a page

and to be able to

see

see what that’s like

I love the consciousness of it

Like I can sit outside

of myself

and interview myself

It feels so good

I can’t tell you how good

It might be illegal

Don’t keep trying to chase

chase the same ole’ high

try to create

create something higher

each time

Don’t reach back

keep going

keep trying

let’s see what that do

And learn stuff

stuff about yourself

along the way
