Letter from my Notebook

by Tony   Apr 4, 2018


Crack my spine and mar my skin
Leave your mark so deep within
Drag your pen across my page
Let me drink every drop of rage

Set your jaw and grind your teeth
Give me the anger underneath
Let me bear all of the pain
That causes tears to fall like rain

I'm the tattered mirror to your soul
Your very last shred of self control
The calming voice inside your head
The chalice of all the ink you've bled

I'm the lover who will never leave
The councillor who will help you grieve
The pastor who will hear your sins
And grant a semblance of peace within

I am your sword, I am your shield
The product of the words you wield
I'm your dialogue, your inner rant
The voice to voice the things you can't
