Why do I write? Why does anyone write? It is a question and a dilemma as old as time itself. For others, I cannot speak, but my own writing stems from a deep desire to express myself to my own self. I want to talk to this person I see every day in the mirror and tell him what can’t be said in simple words. I also write to communicate with those whom I can’t talk to, because they are abstract sensations. If others can find a bit of themselves in the poetry, their own emotions, thoughts, then please go ahead and read my poems. There is a certain pleasure in talking when you are the only listener.
