there is a kind of intimacy
when you put your thoughts on paper
or when you type them out one alphabet at a time.
it is even more intimate
when you let someone in
and allow them to read your words.
when you allow them to peer into your world,
into your mind, your thoughts,
your deepest recesses of your soul.
and i think that is why
i write less and less
about the things that truly matter.
there is no one to share these words with any more
so my words are best kept inside.
