The sun that i choose not to see

The sun that i choose not to see

A Poem by TheAimlessWanderer
"

from the sun

"
writing makes me depressed
my feelings compressed
words not to be heard
things not to be seen 
not even a third or part of my dream
things i want to say i could spend endless days 
on tangents just to say same damn thing the words that wont escape lips 
eclipse by keystrokes 
and flicks of the wrist
wondering why poetry even exists 

a cowards way for some 
others a tale to be spun
getting so caught up in there own web
so deep in tangle 
can't see the sky from the forest
the hypocrite from the philosopher 
the writer from the runner
the webs of a tangled soul they are
whether myth mer or the whimsy of the soul splashing the page
or are caught deeply in their hatred or rage
for some it may be fun 
but when all is said and done
it is just another way to run
from the words i choose not to say
and the sun that i choose not to see.

I feel like you say many things that contradict each other, but I find it rather thought provoking than an actual issue. In fact, it's not bad at all. In the beginning, you say that writing makes you depressed, but most people would find writing therapeutic because it allows one to release supressed emotions onto a page. Yet, this does not seem to be the case with you... It seems it causes more pain because you are failing to understand your own words, if they are even true. It also seems like writing doesn't do much for you because you can't say what you want to say. People can form the most prettiest sentences about pain, but none truly grasp the horror of what depression embodies. In that, I deeply agree with you. However, with people like you, I can actually feel ypur pain. It may not be the same pain you experience, but I feel... Something. You bring life to your writings, if that makes any sense. Also, you wonder about the existence of poetry, which is ironic because writers find poetry as a form of emotional outler, but again, it doesn't seem to work for you. I truly appreciate this writing and I pray for your wellbeing in the future. You may not know how to say the words, but it is better to say something than nothing at all. ^ ^

Thanks i am glad you felt my words.
I saw your title and it intrigued me. I thought it would be some kind of romantic poem, but knowing you, you probably rarely write things in that genre. When I started reading it, I didn't expect it would be a poem about writing. And yes, I would agree with your thought. That writing, or why we write takes on so many reasons that we alone can decipher.
