Purple's Platitudes

nothing but words …


21 December 2013

What don’t you write about, and why?

Why are you so afraid to try?

It isn’t the questions you fear,

but the answers which might appear.

What don’t you want yourself to know?

What might your words possibly show?

Your shadows you refuse to see,

for the sake of propriety.

I say, “Confess!” let truth be told.

Write your way through your own dark soul.

What don’t you write? Make a list,

then one by one, explore, dismiss.
