I Write Because

I must

It’s the energy between the atoms

Without which I’m just


floating around space

My brain is a kinetic hurricane

The only time I’m whole

Is when I take my ideas from the storm

And form them

Into something I can appreciate.

Without writing

My life is meaningless

No reason to stay here

My life’s purpose is clear

So you ask me why I write.

I write because I must
