Look into my little book of poetry.
That is, if you dare.
For buried inside these pages
Is the essence of my soul,
Bleeding and singing with each
And every

A wise man once said that writing
Is the best form of therapy;
Another, that to write you simply have to sit down
And bleed.
Another that writing is just a socially acceptable
Form of schizophrenia.
(Which actually makes a ton of sense.)

Sometimes the words
Come as a steady stream.
Although other days,
Staring at a blank page
(Or Word document,
As is often the case),
Is the worst form of torture, for
I can feel the words
But they just won’t get out
Of my head.

Be careful while reading
My little book of poetry,
For written inside
Is my life.
The ups and downs
(I have so many downs),
Love and loss,
Wonder and betrayal.

For while I know that people will hurt me
And break me
And abandon me,
My words will never leave me.

Reader, I am giving you a choice.
Sometimes I think it would be wiser to simply
Put my book down, and continue
With life.
For my heart and soul
Are often dark and morbid.

But in between the lines,
There is always a flicker of hope.

So it is up to you:
Close the book and walk away
Or take in my life story,
My heart,
My soul,
My very being.

Welcome to my little book of poetry.
So I have this journal in which I keep my writing as well as a few others'... and just little tidbits and stories and art I find. 

And this is going to be the introduction :)

Constructive criticism please??

Cute.  I tend to write about things unrelated to myself, so few are likely to get to know me from my work, although my journal entries are closer to the real me

yeah that makes sense. 

poetry is basically my form of journalling and self expression now.
