I prefer writing over speaking. I'd rather write an e-mail/ text or a letter than talk on the phone or in person.
Instead of talking to someone about how I feel, I'll write it instead- I've always been that way. Poetry used to be my main mode of expression. I wrote a lot of poetry for about ten years or so as a way to pour my heart out when it ached. Many of those poems were written for the woman out there somewhere I knew I'd fall in love with, and would fall in love with me.
During my time of writing poetry, I never showed 95% of them to anyone. Even those I dated, I never shared my poetry with them. They were no worthy.
For Jane, I not only shared them, I wrote them into one journal and gave them to her as a gift. I always thought I'd add to it for her, but I never have (yet).
Writing the kind of poetry I did was my broken heart bleeding onto paper.
Jane was my band-aid.
I didn't know any other way to write poetry, so I stopped writing it. For a good reason. Jane's love mended my heart.
