Everything I Never Told You


When my heart becomes
drained from voices
and sound, the anchor
of social interaction
crushing me into stone.
I go in search
of solitary exclusion

I hide out under
a hard luck moon.
In those moments

I hate no one.

Lost in the stillness
The shadows follow me.
They write in pencil
taking notes in
a black journal
chronicling the sadness
that resides in me.

Something lingers
in the silence, a ghost,
an echo of compassion
creeping up and taking
possession of my bones

Eventually the stars

giving me a provocative

celestial fingers at me.

Singing back
my lost lullaby.
reminding me the

mysterious and grand.

Embracing me in humanity
Folding me back
