Sometimes when I’m alone,
writing is my only escape.
When I need someone to hold me,
words give me a warm embrace.
My feelings smile from the page,
encouraging me to go on.
They tell me they are my best friend
when I have no one to call on.
My words tell me to stand tall,
and they hold my hand.
They tell me I’m beautiful
and that I don’t need a man.
And, sometimes when I’m alone,
writing is my only escape.

I wrote this in dedication to my greatest escape: my writing.
