Under 10 lines | 1/6/16 Poetry Prompt

I write because I feel wrong

When I laugh, cry, or get angry I feel inappropriate

Does anyone else mess things up like I do?

Normal isn’t a thing but I wonder how it feels to think I’m normal

I don’t think anyone can identify with all of my crazy

Still, the most memorable kindness I’ve ever experienced

Was for someone to say “you’re not crazy” when I felt the craziest

I write and document my complex existence because

if you can relate, then you’re not crazy either

And saying so is the kindest thing I can think to do
