accidental human


i cried

in front of you

exposed emotion

unwritten and un-influenced

stained the good times with tears that

are just release


drops to be celebrated

like water after the journey

hide and seek shame won’t ever leave

if i continually seek it out

i got too good at listening

too good

at meek lukewarm

so good

at strangling


whoever told me to sit in a corner

with my head between my knees

taught me

to hide

the contents

of my insides

and i listened

because listening was


but ‘good’

like ‘stop breathing’

is useful instruction to follow


will never outgrow their pigtails
