here I am, with the too much I have said
and the ocean of thoughts I keep locked in my throat.
Here I am with love in my heart and vile in the words I need to spew.
Still, here I am cutting, tailoring these words to hit like lightening.
strong, hard, burning but never enough to make to you hate the rain.
Here I am, on my knees
with my words dancing on iced air
brain mocks heart,
tear clears vision,
regret falls on lap.
here I am, lines crossed, feelings tossed, sleeves bare…
There you are: insouciant.
