Why I Write

Things that captivate me
And cause my heart to beat just a little faster
Are things I write about.
Like the way the sun shines through the leaves
And the dew in the mornings on mountaintops.
The scent of gasoline and cigarettes on the streets of L.A.
And the sound my dog makes as the snores,
Napping by my feet as I write.
I write about things I like
And things that make me move.
Seeing as how I
Am still a year later
Writing poems about you
And the way you never left me due to the fact that you
Were never with me to begin with-
I guess the category of
“Things I like”
Still includes you.
