Write out your Pain

unnamed

Before all else fails, write out your pain.

Write like an avalanche.
Write like a tidal wave.
Pour it out and then work it over.
Include every piece of hurt and humiliation.

Include your loss, your yearning, and your burning disappointment.
Include your sour regret.

Examine it. Scrutinize it. Dissect it. Fine tune it.

Stare at your devastation there on the page. There arranged in neat, clean orderly rows of rawness,
crafted into something at once horrifying and beautiful.

Read it.

Read it again.

Make sure it includes every bit of flesh, bone and cartilage that it should because you need it to.

Write out your pain before all else fails.
