little lay lay

poetry a word

you ask why do i write poetry and i say because it turns my hurt into metaphors 

you ask why do i write poetry and i say because i feel a special euphoria

you ask why do i write poetry and i say becaase it's a distraction 

you ask why do i write poetry and i say because i love the artistry 

you ask why do i write poetry and i just keep writing

you ask how long have i been hurting and i say everyday

Emotionally 

Carefully 

Freely

I freely write in different forms of my hurt and it's simply a mere escape

you ask why do i write poetry and i say it's for me specifically

You ask why do i write poetry and i say because it keeps me from dying 

You ask why do i write poetry and i say because it encourages me to keep trying

although i may be crying i simply keep trying

you ask why do i write poetry because like me it grows stronger each day and it is my shield

you ask why do i write poetry and i say because it binds and bonds me to myself 

you ask why do i write poetry and i say it is so i can keep track of myself 

you ask why do i write poetry and i say it is so i can cope with myself
