If I Could Write About Something

March 8th, 2014 No comments

I’d write about you.
I’d write about us.
I’d write about our time together and what it meant to me.

I’d write to bring you back and push you away.
I’d write for your clarity and for your confusion.

I’d write for our health and to find a sense of meaning and purpose.
I’d write to pass the time and get lost in something that doesn’t necessarily mean anything.
I’d write to promote my own saneness.

I’d write from the gut and explode every impulse on the page.
I’d blow you away with a leaf blower in the hopes that we could walk together in the fall.
I’d write about the mist drops on the leaves, the dampness in the air and the coffee in our hands.

I’d write in small short segments that didn’t explain much at all.
I’d write out of anger.
I’d write out of frustration.
I’d write out of absolute fury.
I’d write to fight for control.

I’d write because this isn’t right and it is.
I’d write because this is one of the things I know how to do.
