Writing Saved Me

Writing saved me from
being totally lost and lonely,
seeking for the true one and only.

Writing saved me from
feeling left and lonesome
and living a life that’s unwholesome.

Writing saved me from
being hurt and heartbroken,
trying to find words left unspoken.

Writing saved me from
replaying my painful past
reaching for flowers that’ll fade fast.

Writing saved me from
sinking in the sea of sorrow
and fighting the shadows of tomorrow.

Writing saved me from
telling tales of bitter tears
and losing the war against my fears.
