Control Alt Delete

The power when my fingers and the keyboard meet

You control me

I control Acts 1, 2 and 3

You make my life a living hell

Writing puts me under a healing spell

You make my mind a warzone

Writing makes me feel at home

You suffocate me

Writing lets me breathe

You make me feel broken

Writing speaks what you forced unspoken

So, OCD?

You control

My doubt

My guilt

My pain

But I control

My words

My voice

My name

If daily we must fight

Then daily I will write
