Writing Diagnostics

I sit down and write words of random prose, and when I get to the end and look back, I see a skewed and unexpected image of what others might see.

But when I write poetry,
And get to the end, and look back
All I see, is a mirror image,

Of the emotion within my soul
That compelled me to write it in the first place.
