I am a writer.

My writing is never easy.

It comes

in fits and bursts

when my soul is twisted

and my bones are dry.

Only words can

unlock the calm

To reveal inner truths

and awaken

and soothe

what without words sits crouched

deep in the joints

Ready to feed on every insecurity

and “what if.”

But one word

one line

one page

is enough

to steady my heart

Until the thoughts come again.

No.

My writing is never easy.
