Catharsis: Purification or purgation of emotions primarily through art ~Webster

Catharsis

Words
inked onto paper
in rhythm and rhyme
cleansing my soul
with every line
bled from my heart
the pour from my fingers
washing you away
‘till all that lingers
are words

Howdy Ruth.
I have to admit that I like your definition of "catharsis" a lot better than old Websters!
Good lines!
