I Need This Time

I need this time to be alone
Time to reflect
On me, and what will happen next

I need this time to think
Get a pad and permanently tattoo
My emotions with ink

No matter how many times you blink
You'll always see my words and stay forever linked

That is why I need this time
To get to know myself again
And discuss with my pen

About what I want to say
Then my hand will connect with my quill
Express how I feel

Then I'm left feeling good about the words
My pen chose to lay

On the thin paper sheet
Where my life and the tree meet
Quiet and discreet
My feelings as a secret is what we all keep
My life, my pen, my sheet

I need this time
