I Am An Addict With A Pen

I am an addict with a pen
I have a trouble in the past
Past relationships
Past brokenness
Brokenness inspires me
Brokenness motivates
Motivates my writing
Motivates my actions
Actions speak louder than words
Actions are most important
Important thoughts
Important words
Words are only spoken from a human mouth
Words are only letters on a piece of paper
Paper to journal my thoughts
Paper to talk through my emotions
Emotions are what stop my words from flowing
Emotions come in waves
Waves of riots
Waves of depression
Depression aches in my heart
Depression can be constant
Constant heartbreak
Constant pain
Pain is temporary
Pain will go away
Away from you
Away from your thoughts
Thoughts can kill
Thoughts can heal
Heal you from your brokenness
Heal you from your addiction
