I will never know the feeling
of thrilling someone I do not know
for most of their life
just from the words I write.
I won`t hear their applause
or see their faces
as they experience my joys
or my pains of living.
The readers as transparent
as a window opening on nothing,
the lonely task completed
inside my mind and through
the pen across the paper.
Whatever the result
it must be written
for the sake of my own sanity
and the one person
who understands it all.
