I Could:

I could write about
The darkness and what
Goes bump in the night

I could write about
The devil and his demons
That fill me with fright

I could write about
Depression that makes me
Want to hang from a tree

I could write about
Being alone but would
You really want to read

I could write about
All this gloom around me
Still you wouldn’t care

I could write about it
But you’d probably say
Why would this he share

So I’ll just write about
The things it seems
You only want to read

I’d better not write 
About any of these feelings 
That hide deep inside of me

You must write what's in your soul only for yourself. If you focus on only what an audience wants, it is not yours...

and who reads my writing here Snaggle?

Will thank you.

Lynn said...

I always read it, but don't always comment. :)

Thanks Lynn
I'm told a writer is a writer even if no one reads their words.
So that makes me two people above a writer LOL

Snaggle Tooth said...

Well, I do- but you never know who may be lurking in the shadows or come upon it later...

But hey, self publishing to share only happens because of internet access! I write anyways! Yep, Lynn is correct!

Snaggle: and Lynn:

I have to give you two a very big hug
I guess I'm not the easy's blogger to
get along with.
