People had always said that I'd write, because
I liked to read, but I always scoffed at them.
Telling them that it was a lie. But now I'm not
So sure. I used to read to drown myself, to
Block out the world around me and save
What I am, salvage my heart, and to protect myself.
Now I just do it because I enjoy it. I write, not because
I'm good at it, but because I want to. I have to.
