Why I Write - Poem by Not Long Left

For all those who read my words,
honesty surfaces in many ways,
look within these words,
and rest your mind between the gaps,
mock the errors if you wish,
but like the smoking of a ciggarette,
or the taste of beer after sex,
completion of a poem feels just perfect
