In My Silence

“Words dazzle and deceive because they are mimed by the face. But black words on a white page are the soul laid bare.”   ~ Guy de Maupassant

To speak aloud the words my heart beats out
would slice my mouth and the 
very air escaping would catch fire
my hands can only fumble with the pen and leave words 
cobbled together like scattered pieces of a puzzle
if someone takes the time to sort and fit them together
they can read my life
and sit with me in my silence
to watch the storm to blow over,
  bend the trees and rainwash the pain away

I write. I write a lot. A. LOT. There are times I am half blind with a sentence ricocheting off the walls of my stupid, cant be shut off to save my life, brain. I am miserable until I get it down on paper. Punch it up a bit. Usually cross out half of it. And then breathe. Relax. Only to do it all again..... But I just thought that was me. How I am. Not a writer....noooo...not me. Writers are.....writing people. People Who Write. REALLY write. Write things that matter. All grown up very important things. I am just a scribbler of sorts. And I was/am content with that....if it's true, well then....a scribbler am I. Until the thought wormed its way in to my brain (the furtive sneaky bitch) that maybe...just maybe...that is writing. My style. My strange way. But....still writing. So here I am at the dance. Not sure I know any of the moves and the music is entirely mine. But.....only one way to find out. Would you care to join me?
