Inky Ode

Cross Verve

Let my life flow through your inky scrawl
Bring life to my words
Make light of my thoughts
Open my soul for the world to see
The darkest corners of my mind are open now
The deepest parts of my heart are on display
Will I be judged?
Will I be scorned?
What will they say about my words?
It’s the hardest part of being a writer, I’m afraid,
Opening yourself up to the world and the judgment it holds
What effect will my thoughts have on it?
How can I carve a place for my soul in it?
Every letter is a piece of my being,
A memory, a feeling, an opinion
Please help me open up to the page, my dearest friend
You’ve always helped me write the words I cannot say
The thoughts that have no spoken words
The secrets I’ve held but cannot utter aloud
Every piece of my being is on display now, I’m afraid
Everything I am is now on the page
Thank you for releasing them from my being, thank you dearly
For the words my mind contains are toxic
They consume my being
Distract my thoughts
Change my decisions
Alter my outlook on life
I need to set them free, and you’ve been their savior
Your ink is the vessel in which they can reach the world
