Ode to Pen and Pad

I spill my heart on paper because somehow paper understands
When I tell my story to paper it accepts it and lets it stand

This sheet won’t tell me that what I went through was rough
It somehow knows that it was tough and me telling it my story is enough

I'm not able to express myself in person, whatever the reason
I feel I can’t trust most people, but with my pen and pad I really don’t need them

Whenever a thought pops up or I feel the need to scream until I turn blue
Please don’t take offense if it’s not you that I turn to

Simply put, the most trustworthy shoulder I tend to lean on
Has lead, an eraser, and a lined surface I let my heart bleed on
