Saving My Own Life

I.

Words I write, seem to

pale to the words I think.

Expectations unrealized

while standards aren’t met.

II.

Reaching for the brass ring

leaves me empty handed.

Seeking an audience

only leaves me lonely.

III.

Clever turn of phrase

achieved occasionally

but struggle to achieve

a literary greatness.

IV.

But in scribing I’ve found

the best therapy

and the means by which

I might save my own life.
