you make it hard to leave you
without saying what beats out of my chest, frighteningly
willingly, i withhold, despite the urge to throw up what it is i should
i heard you mutter it on a drunken breath,
thinking i might mistake the words for a sigh
today, as i lay on your chest, i feel
the words swim up for deliverance
ready to be truthful on the outside,
so tried of chiming and endlessly echoing through my own chambers
caution cautions me from spilling over,
too much, too soon or
i’m just —
too scared
