I’ve started writing.
Numerous times
Maybe this time
will be
the one.

Write for me.
not for you.

because my mind
is full.

Don’t delete it this time.
Don’t even post.

No one has to know

needs to know.

And if they do stumble
or dare I share

Then perhaps
they too
can enjoy the despair.

I mean joy.
They to do tend to dance
