Writing therapy

Writing has and always will be my therapy - the way I take the words I can't quite say and capture them on the page. Problem is - the words conjured in my head come too quickly. I can't keep up with them. They run too fast.

So when I sit down to trap them in my notebook, they finally sit nicely on the shelf of each line. I like their shapes, their structure. I smile at them. I rearrange them until they make sense outside of me, and then I can take them back in.

Then they can sit just as nicely in my head.
