Why I write

Illustrated by Anastasia Kolokotronis

The words I speak will make you clench,

the words I write make you undress,

'till your soul stands naked and bare,

syllable after syllable,

with each sound I make,

with each breath I take,

during the break from my words and the seeping of my sweat

through my pores you will understand,

understand why I write.

Not just for the heck of it,

but for the strength I get,

with each curve of each letter and every sentence made up of words

and every word you spoke,

that makes up my soul.
