Seeking Validation

by Michael Hartfield 4 years ago in sad poetry

A Poem

The process of writing has always been an out of body experience

I can not sit and make myself pour words on paper

but when I am falling my mind will billow and my fingers will strike keys to form the most raw and unfiltered thoughts that subside in my brain

whether my falling is in love or apart,

my words are desperate for validation while I hide behind them

It is only real if others can see, but i'd rather they see this than me
