A blank page.

A blank screen.

A flashing curser.

Words roll around in my head.

Words struggle to find a voice.

Words struggle to find a purpose.

Words are my friend, other times my enemy.

Words are illusive.




Words are exhausting.

Words are laborious.

Grueling grueling words.

Meaningless words.

I hate words.

Words are hard to put into context.

Words evade structure in my brain.




Words hurt me.

Words heal me.

Lovely wonderful words.

Words haunt me.

Words torture me.

Words challenge me.

Words change me.

Words speak to me.

Precious words.

I love words.

  1. That quote is so powerful.
    So is your poem.
    It is very true. Even when it is therapeutic, it forces us to relive the hurts we have faced. Then over and over we have to read what we have written. I’m still working on the courage to publish my posts as a blogger. Knowing others will read my pain is still difficult. Thank you for writing that.


    1. Thank you! It was a hard decision for me too to start my blog but it has been a very good experience for me. I’ve been well received by people here on WordPress and it has helped my family and friends better understand what I go through. I hope that gives you some encouragement to go for it!

  2. Having good support makes all the difference. From what I have read so far, it seems like you are doing a fantastic job!
    I’m still a bit timid, but I’m getting good feedback. Especially from the WordPress community. Hopefully in time I will grow as a writer. I can already tell the work is helping me in many ways: through my brain clarity and my spiritual life. All positives 🙂
    It’s all a process…
