Words swirl around in the mind,
bringing meaning to an otherwise
dreaded and foreboding existence.
Words on paper or on screen
keep the dark at bay for me.
All that's needed is a pen
and notebook on the desk.
Love and fear all I feel
all goes to the paper there.
Everything can be explained
by a simple poem written.
A life without words simple and dull
never fulfilled in a life full of waste.
