release through writing

so a lot has been going on in the last few years, and often i feel like i have no one to talk to about it. subsequently, there have been many times i’ve risen in the wee hours of the morning, mind cluttered with anxieties.

i have a tiny notebook i keep by my bed, along with a purple pen. this has been my poetry book for the last four years, and recently it’s been getting a lot fuller. i also keep poems on my google drive, most of which i’ve posted on tumblr. poetry is an excellent release for emotion because it can take any form to fit my thoughts.

one of my favorite poets.
one of my favorite poets. this poem, i believe, is her best, and this reading of it is spectacular.

and so, i encourage all of you: when you have a moment of intense emotion, positive, negative, or otherwise, vent it through poetry. cast aside all the rules and regulations of couplets, sonnets, iambic pentameter that you were taught in school – or use them, if that is your forte. and write, friends. write. the eyes are the windows to the soul, they say, but words are the keys to understanding oneself.
