Why I Write

I write to slow down

Lengthen joys

Confront pain.
I write to find

The girl inside

Of the woman
And to find

The woman inside

Of the girl.
I grab pens

So that I can

Live forever.
I buy paper

So that I can

Scribble myself

Into disasters

Or out of them.
I write

Because silence

Listens better

Than people..
But mostly,

I write because

It is so darn fun

To play with with words

Like a cat plays with mice.
