Hiding behind the pen

The pen can be a form
Of passive aggression.
A way of saying things on a page
That you can’t bring yourself to say
Face to face.
Many books are filled with words
That were left unsaid,
Plans that were never carried out:
Life that was not lived.
While narrative is a superpower
It cannot replace actual experiences.
Words are meant to describe, inform
And even shape reality,
Not replace it.
