My fingers bleed words
that my lips cannot say.
When they try to trickle out,
I scowl and turn away.

It may not be contagious,
but it is a disease.
Holding myself deep inside,
it's getting hard to breathe.

Lies come so easy,
to cover up the truth.
It’s like my second nature,
grown from my very youth.

It’s deeper than conviction,
more earnest than a thought.

It’s my way

It’s my life

It is my disease.
Just venting a little--this is something I stuggle with literally every day. Tell me what you think.

Beautiful, I absolutely love this. It's sad that you're going through this, and I understand where you're coming from. I do appreciate though, that you have shared yor emotions so beautifully, without a cry of self-pity. Remarkable work!

It sounds like writers block. But yet again, there is a disease which no one acknowledges, and that is overcoming the fear to write what we feel, and it seems you can overcome that. You are a very talented person :)
