if these
walls could
talk
then i'm sure
they'd be
screaming
get out,
burn us
down,
we can't
bear
to hold you
any
longer


(been too busy dreaming to get any sleep)

In your bones and
between their clenched jaws
one finds unspent bravery (not much).

Something akin to mercury
or silver
from a filling (too cold, too much?).

It does matter
and I do care (but only so much)
ha, and you and I both know why.

Made the mistake of thinking
there was such a thing
as too much, (inasmuch as)
bravery and bravado holding together,

Just for once.

Stunning work as always, and a magnificent twist on the phrase.

This poem...is like you looked into my head and wrote what you saw. I'm sorry you're feeling this way/have felt this way, but thank you so much for writing it down and sharing it. :heart:

Do you speak of people or you? That's very critical. And why are walls so frail?
