Poetry: My Sanity

Thu, 08/08/2013 - 14:24 -- JadaKai

When so many things 

are going through my head

I use Poetry to get them out

or it'll come out in the wrong way

 

The only acting I'm good at

is when I write

I can play a killer, an outcast,

a horse, and even a bird

 

All I do is analyze and

overanalyze when I write

because when I'm speaking,

it's usually about something I underanalyzed

 

When I write,

I can't help but carefully 

plan out my words unlike

when I have to speak

 

I'm unafraid when I write

and I'm able to easily express

my feelings and feelings

that I've created

 

I'm always thinking about 

characters for stories

and writing poetry helps

me develop those characters

 

Poetry is what helps me

write stories and

understand different types

of people

 

Without poetry I wouldn't

be able to write stories

or separate the unstable

 characters from myself

 

It's what I need to express

my psychoanalyzing mind 

without going crazy

because of it

 

Poetry is what I love,

what I need,

what I use to speak,

and what keeps me sane
