I was looking over some older poems and it is crazy how a writer’s voice can change.
I noticed a trend of my writing from last year. It was so dense with raw, angry emotions. A whirlwind of desire, confusion, and betrayal. In those moments, I felt like I was helpless to these emotions I wanted to embrace but I could not. Now that I look back and remember those feelings I had, I am happy I no longer feel the same but now I can look back and appreciate the poems I wrote during those times.
Do you ever write something in the whirlwind of a great emotion and then look back it and be surprised you can write something with such passion? It is amazing how lost you can become in the moment.
I have found a sort of clarity now and writing for me is peaceful. I used to write constantly because I did not know how to process how I was feeling. I would write and write until I felt calm. I have found that calmness now and I only feel a level of passion when I allow myself to sit down and write.
Writing can be an anchor for me but for now, it is my special time to be alone with my thoughts.
