I've Been Gone

I've been silent for awhile
the words just haven't hit my tongue.
My fingertips haven't felt the call
to dance across the keyboard.
Nothing fancy,
Just a couple verses
that are meant to chill me to the bone
and remind me of the voices
that keep rising from the dirt.
The dead are rising in my head
and I can feel the cobwebs filling up my den.
I'm sick of feeling crazy.
I'm done with being lazy
and if I can
I'll write once or twice or fifteen times a day
just to make sure you see it
flowing from me everyday.
These words are my own
and I am here to stay.
Whether or not you share my sentiment.
I'm not going away.
