why do you keep coming back

why do you keep coming back

Sometime after I stopped writing, I began again.
And the time after that.
After that as well.
I threw the words away, but
Like loyal puppies.
Or hellhounds.
I would curse the demon
that took possession of my fingers
and forced me to tap-tap on the buttons
until the edges of my mood smoothed down.

I never thanked it.
I never understood why I needed to.

But perhaps I have learned my lesson.
They reached into nothing
and dragged me into light.
And now I have found them and they will shake my being for months to come
And I will write and write and write until I am ready to feel safe again
Safe knowing I am safe from all meaningful knowledge
All esoteric verse and corrupted metre

Until I am ready to lay claim to 
words written on walls.

It seems like you are very much back with a vengeance.
