I am sitting here

Inside these four walls.

Remembering

Trying to get hold of words.

Paper, pen.

Silence in place

But my head is crowded

With thoughts.

Listening for the right words

Whispering softly

Lips twitching.

I can hear my heart beating

I can feel the rhythm.

A poem

A song

A story

Realizations and inspirations

Flowing uncontrollably.

Ideas

On pain and suffering

On love and joy

On confusion and understanding.

Lights on 'till morning

Thinking deep.

Erasures.

A pause.

I am writing.
