The art of words (Why I Write)

I like words

To pin them in my head;

repeat them like mantras

apply them where I can

throw them into thoughts

small prose, poetry

ways to express

the catacalysmic feelings

of being alone

in a fight with


mental illness;

the feeling of dread;

not wanting to start the day;

the loss of mentality;

something, some facet

to use adjectives in the right way


with precision to express

some way for someone to understand

even if the someone

happens to be


the art of words

the art of condensation
