Why do you write?

Is there a reason for writing? 


Shakespeare didn’t have a real reason for writing. He just wrote! Poets write with a hidden meaning. We write because our lives depend on it; metaphorically and realistically. 

But your writing style is different. It’s tragic yet so beautiful; it has a Byronic vibe, it’s infused with such deep emotions that leaves one thinking. It’s sad; but in a good way. What’s behind it?

Nothing; I just hate writing.

But why do you write?

I write because I want to, because I have to, and because I need to. I write because I’m afraid of the inevitable, because I see life as death and death as peace. I write because I’m a lost soul who can only be found in the lines she writes. I write because it’s my only escape from reality; it keeps me sane; it tells me the truth. It protects me from me.

You’re your own demon. However, if you hate writing, and you write anyway, what’ll happen if you decide to stop writing?

I’ll cease to exist.


You’ll never understand!
