pain and paper

just write, he says
write the silences your heart cannot speak

do not be afraid of them
wrap yourself inside your words

write your desire, write your need
let your words speak the love you deny

fill the empty spaces with words
let them move through you, over your soft skin

write until the words flow, cascading in waves
let them drip from you like sweet honey

let the words satiate your longing
bringing beauty to your barren soul
