Original Write To Heal poem.

I am rewriting all of my work because I am working on a book. I felt it was important to share this re-write because its essence is the point to this blog and all of my current work.

Read aloud for impact.

 

Let me know what you think.

 


Write To Heal Statement, by Drem

December 10, 2015. Rewritten August 28, 2016

 

“You aren’t alone.

I hear you.

I hear you

when you think bad thoughts

and write them down,

thinking nobody cares what you have to say.

I care.

I hear you

when you hate your body

and speak about why you hate yourself.

I’m there.

I hear you

when you

worry about me

because you read my words.

Don’t be worried.

The point of me writing them is for you to see them

and thus see me.

You’re seeing me.

I hear you

when you think tomorrow might not be worth it,

jotting it down now in ink.

I think it will be worth it.

I care.

Stay.

I hear you

when your bones feel like jagged glass

and sound like cracks and buckles.

I know how that feels.

I relate.

I hear you

when you don’t sleep for days on end,

scribbled out in a notebook,

blurred and hard to read.

We’re both afraid of sleep.

I hear you

when you yell at your book

saying that pain extends throughout every inch of your body.

I feel you.

I hear you

when you see your own blood drip,

slowly staining your skin.

I see. Don’t be ashamed.

I hear you

as you plead for help

and your tears fall from your cheeks

that form the words on the pages.

It makes your work unique.

You aren’t alone.

I am here.

I am listening.

We all care.

Let us Write To Heal.”
