Why I write..

23 Feb

Why I write? I write to escape reality. I write because i cant be heard. I write for life; its second chances. I write because it brings out what my mouth can’t say. I write because I believe it can create a path in darkness. I write out of my experiences. I write because then I do not have to speak. I write with the shades of memory. I write for a smile. I write as a witness to what I have seen, touched, and felt. I write as a witness to what I imagine, and dream. I write for the love of ideas. I write for the surprise of a feeling, moment. I write for those breathtaking moments. I write for my addiction to words. I write to give voice to the voiceless. I write to seek help for the lonely, isolated, grief ones. I write to imagine things differently. I write as a hobby. I write because i want to be a hope, awaken the hunger, thirst for freedom. I write to make make my words as a hope, a comfort; make you feel like “yes, that explains me from deep inside.”. For when you cry and no is by your side my words will be. I write to make you feel, wonder how close we are, how close we can relate even though we’ve never met. I write to fill my soul, and for those who cant express themselves through words. I keep writing and suddenly, I am overcome the madness, the pointless, the ridiculousness of this list. I trust nothing especially myself. Then i realize it doesn’t matter, words are always an illusion, a puzzle. words are splinters from cut glass. I write because it is dangerous, a bloody risk, a lie, very strong, breaking; like love, makes your heart believe a lie, form the words, to say the words, to touch the loved, to be touched, to reveal how vulnerable we are, how weak we humans are. I write as though I whisper in the ears of who I love.
Why do you write?
