  • I think perhaps the reason I write so much, share so much. The reason I'm bursting at the seams to express myself.

    Is because after every line of poetry, every word whispered in the dark at 4 am, every story told to strangers on buses. After all of that. I have been unable to express anything real.

    I'm dying to let the ocean of my soul
    out through my mouth.
    But it comes so slowly.
