I write because...

"I love her, but... when we talk, she makes me think too much. It kinda makes my head hurt."
--Quote about me, as said by a good friend, which was not intended for my ears
I write because...
folks think I'm too serious as it is,
because I always rehearse stories in my head before telling 'em,
and I'm over sensitive if you don't listen a certain way,
and neither of us seem to have the time of day to converse rather than chat,
and because the words never come out right the first time.
I write because my thoughts are unfinished and connected to previous thoughts,
and it seems to be too much work for anyone to get caught up in anyone else's ever-forming story.
I write because...
