Why I write

Show emotion? I can't
Deep within my heart,
Nice and tight,
My emotions sleep; inaccessible
I reach down
Try to bring them out.
Not far enough; buried too deep down.
Therefore, I write.
I write to convey
That which I can't show
The words fly off my fingertips
I write;all things revealed.
The emotions are deep within me.
To the outside world,
My lips are sealed;
I write.
