37 (who?)
An electrical surge
of inspired neurons-
the chrome antennae
screeches out
with a far louder voice
than my own
meager larynx.
I think therefore I am,
I type therefore
I am heard.
and I have to thank you all for hearing me ♥

Mr E.? Mystery? Who knows. It's no mystery actually, this was inspired by my friend *chromeantennae's new username. Hope you don't mind Mr. E. <3

I was thinking about my virtual self (`KathrynODriscoll) vs my real self, and how difficult it is for me to talk in "real life".

Utterly thrilling read. Immediately picked up on the reference to Descartes, especially since his famous saying is a part of my username's label. As a writer, the art of the written word can be for more potent than speech. Written communication and verbal communication mixed with body language and gestures can grant a equilibrium when it comes to communication, yet written communication has its ways of promoting a voice far more powerful than that alluded to in verbal communication. Especially with Descartes-esque, "I think therefore I am, I type therefore I am heard." which gives me the impression that written communication allows for a finesse more so than speaking, as speaking is more spontaneous whereas writing allows for more time for the writer to think, to plan ahead in their message. 

Anyways I'll stop now, I appear to be rambling a bit too much. Regardless of my philosophising this was a pleasant read.
Gosh thank you! :D So much!! and yes that was intended. For 8 years I didnt leave the house so typing was my only form of communication, and even now thats not the same I can type as fast as I think, probably as fast as I could talk, and if I am in emotional distress I can write about it in poetry but cant speak about it to anyone.

Sorry for the late reply. You're very welcome. :D I write a heck of lot of poetry where thinking and typing blend into one. And I agree wholeheartedly with your last remark. I can write about my emotions in a poetry format, but to speak of my emotions or even my poetry to anyone I tend to feel a degree of embarrassment.

"I think therefore I am,
I type therefore
I am heard."

Love how you added a modern line to Descartes. Really powerful. :heart:
:D Glad you like it, its risky!

Yes, the written word is incredibly powerful. The spoken word can be too...but it's just that much harder. :heart:

Mr. E. Nigma? Sorry for the Batman reference, but I was reminded of it in your description. This is a fantastic piece.
:giggle: Thanks Calleigh
