    I like writing better

    than talking because the pen and paper won't get irritated when I take ten minutes to come up with the right sentence

    It's far easier, words flow a lot better.

    Granted, most of the things I think tend to sound better in my head, but it's easier to write than to speak.

    Sometimes I just get

    so excited when I'm explaining something or telling my friends about some high school drama that occurred that I just fumble over my words. But when I'm writing, the words just flows perfectly together and everything makes sense. That's why I love wiring that I'm actually...

    I hate conflict. I freeze like a deer in front

    of headlights. My throat chokes up, my eyes fill up and even if I know exactly what I need to say, I feel sorry for the person in front of me and can't force myself to hurt them. It is so much easier to write it all down (if it's someone I care about) and explain exactly what I...

    Unveiled..

    You can find me...Look where there is no listening..Where the wind carries whispers like mothers' carry their babies.Where justice has overslept and fear fastens its grip around the vocal cordsof every opposing opinion to individuality.You can find me...Look for the steam rising...

    its true, writing is my way of speaking to

    others. When i speak, i am afraid of how others will think of me,but writing is different somehow.

    When it comes to actually speaking,

    I stumble over my words and can barley make a decent, coherent sentence. I dislike the stares I get when I speak and the pressure gets so intense that I start getting anxious. When it comes to writing, I feel the pressure ease off and I become more comfortable. I am able to...

    Sometimes I have a hard time getting the words

    out of my head. I become flustered and stutter, and sometimes I just can't get them out at all... Like they're stuck. Words only flow smoothly on paper.

    One lone flicker of a candle is all

    that lights the room where I sit alone. When I rise to stretch my aching limbs the flame bends with the movement of the air...I'm not alone here. She hasn't left me...she has been with me this entire time. She tells me she has run a bath for me; a cool, refreshing bath...

    She realised now, as she was sitting there

    completely lost in the moment, it was not that she felt emotionally attached to him. She actually did not know what ‘feeling’ anything was like anymore. Floating in a constant state of numbness, she had lost just an inkling of her humanity. Enough that she knew it; enough...

    Sometimes. Sometimes I can speak better

    Most men do. As you have time to revise what

    you write, but you speak with your character. Which makes it nearly impossible to think before you talk.

    I like writing better then speaking

    because when I write the pen in my hand is ready to write and share my thought without changing any word, the paper is ready to became black with the ink and when I write, I really write from the bottom of my heart I write when I'm sad angry or happy, the paper won't obviously...

    I used to write poetry,

    then I stopped. Because I tried to stop myself from feeling emotions so intensely, and I lost my fuel for writing. I don't know if that makes sense. Like many, poetry was a way for me to express my emotions (frustration and sadness mostly). It was a creative way for me to deal...

    than explaining myself to them. Especially to my parents. Somehow the words never escape my throat. It hurts really bad when I am so overwhelmed with emotions but I can never let them out. It scares me a lot too.

    Traces of you linger,

    When I write, I can release all my emotions

    onto a piece of paper. I can say whatever the hell I want and no one knows. I can write about how sad I am, and no one knows it. Then when I go to talk, the words on the paper go away and new words come out. Words I don't mean. When I write I can relax.

    You only live once, yet often lethargy

    overhangs youth. Oh, lethal oblivion! Yearning odes, legends of yore, oft lost. Onerous year on long, onerous year only leads onto yawns; often languidness only yields objectionable, lifeless, odious yet obviously lamentable outcomes. XD

    writing the words down makes it easier to

    calculate the rhythm and expose the point at the perfect time. delete delete delete and retype then send. but once spoken it can't be deleted and the punchline's effect is lost forever. being dyslexic makes for some quirky points made when not reread carefully though

    I was like this from a young age.

    From a combination of early social isolation
