What poetry is to me :)

Poetry is:

All the things I never could say

The words left unspoken

The conversations I should have had

Everything I needed to say, should have said, but did not

Poetry is:


A healing balm on my scars

The needle and thread that stitches up my broken, bleeding heart

The sheet of paper that allows me to dump all my

Emotional angst onto it

Poetry is:

The silent listener who never judges just listens

The emotionally instable person who from their hands

We get great works of art and a look into the beauty

Of such things as depression, bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia

The quiet, misunderstood kid in the corner who no one

Says anything about except "they're quiet" or "they're nice"

Poetry is:

The only way to see behind my wall of stupid jokes,

Sarcasm, fake smiles, and weirdness

A way to see who I really am

The story of my feelings, of us, of experiences, of me

Poetry is and was:

My constant when others are not and were not

My saving grace
