Day 23: Aftermath


i want you to know that if i told you,
you probably wouldn't understand, because
in the end it's easier to believe
that we're the only one who
will ever get it anyway.

it isn't really.

this is a poem about love
and family
and the way they mostly take your words away,
or mine, anyhow,
and they leave you frozen -

but you knew that, didn't you?

you probably already knew - 

but I wouldn't complain if you said it anyway:
i'm listening, or
i hear you, or
me too.
