Hypergraphia disturbs me,
I think I maybe?
write too much…too often…like I cannot,
Here is a definition if you are unaware of the term.
Sometimes, I just cannot stop writing
and it does not mean that I have
anything useful or important to say,
it is not creativity, at least not in a meaningful way.
I simply spew words at my blog or my journal,
or where-ever. I feel a bit guilty for this-this empty pleasure.
Like covering a toilet stall with useless graffiti.
the urge to write comes over me,
quite hysterical. It’s like trying to hold your breath and it’s that moment-
where you cannot hold your breath any longer and you are
gasping for air? It’s kinda like that moment except instead of gasping
for air- I am spilling words out and I cannot keep them in any longer.
I try to contain them in a mason jar
only to find that the words have escaped-
I try to catch them before they spring loose from my
quick typing hand
but tiger-like, they pounce again.
I’m a poetry addict….I do not think
that there is even a 12 step program for that
or a plush comfty re-hab, I could check into-
to keep my thoughts from running rampant
straight into you,
yes, you reading this.
and I am sorry,
but I do not know how to stop writing-
it’s one of my most treasured addictions.
