I Write


The world stands still

I am unable to surpass it

Then, I look into the reflection

And I write the wonders I seek

Fear I would forget

I struggle

I the sensation of a cold sweat

I am unable to

The words, the words

I find it difficult to find the right words

The words to convey

I take a moment, maybe two

And become preoccupy

Then my mind finds clarity

And everything finds a place

I think I have it, and I rush to jolt it down

But sometimes the words slip through my pen

Then in an instant I recall

I write, I write

Or else, I’ll drown

It’s difficult to breathe

The Earth stands still

Then I find my words, I take a breath

I feel the rotation beneath me

I write, everything feels

In place
