Do I write to admit, confess or conceal?

Some days writing feels more like hidingother days I spill truth like blood (gushing from a wound)

Some days I register ideas other days sad leaking words startle me

Stumbling I try to track disappearing words

missed meanings MixXeD up usage

Shame for what came once so *___________________

Now I draw a line where the right word fell into its proper place

a__________________ for the missing word

 

Empty spaces grow into longer lines

 

*effortlessly this word appeared 6 hours later from beginning this poem

    And yet, you courageously continue to concoct creations. Congratulations. I think about what I might write but do not put pen to page, finger to keyboard, editing, excusing, and excuse-ing. Thanks Davyne. xo
