a lot of people ask who I write for
and mainly it’s really for my girlfriend
I’ve always said that she’s the kind of girl
that makes you write poetry.
it’s to express the endless love
the irretrievable gratitude
and the unconditional happiness I feel.
but it’s also for the broken ones
who desperately want to believe in hope
who have Pandora’s box
wrenched from their hands.
for the crying ones
who need solidarity and a warm cup of tea
overwhelmed and wrapped in a blanket.
it’s also for the 9-to-5’s
who drink when they come home
for those who are simply fed up
and want an escape from it all.
I write to help heal.
for the people out there
who just need to know someone understands.
I write because it’s 4am and
I’m listening to Keaton Henson
and these raw feelings
won’t leave my brain
and won’t let me sleep
to save myself.
I'm not sure I got where I initially intended but it's all about the journey and not the destination, right?
