i don't remember telling you that it was ever okay
or that i was ever okay. because honesty should be number one
and the truth is simply that i stopped being okay
a long time ago, at about the same time that

   i became a writer:

not when i picked up a pencil and wrote a sloppy letter "m".
not when i taught myself to type on the computer
-- and came up with millions of stories.
not even when i thought my life was

f
 a
   l
     l
       i
         n
           g      a   p   a   r   t   .

writing: a form of self-expression,
something that can be used - and abused


but when it became my way of showing my true colors
that's when


   i became a writer:

after nights of crying myself to sleep
(over trivial things that at one time mattered)
because that was when i learned that
there was one weapon i have on my side: words.

and now my mind is tainted with depression that's
mingled with thoughts and ideas to create
a wave of imperfect and unprofessional "poetry".

because i became a writer (not author, nor poet) and now that's what i do.
