haunted

often

growing up

after a fall

i was told

to let the wounds

be.

that the best

way for their

healing

was their solitude.

that scars could come

but most would

go.

and i would be better.

it is a weird thing.

for i am all grown now.

and i

try

and try

and try

let the wounds be.

and it just doesn’t seem to work anymore

you don’t always

have

to drown.

blackboards.

stained chalk.

a heart held

bleeding.

outside

of its chest.

you know the feeling

when it feels

as though

you can’t be saved

being.

the becoming is slow. and often. you will not feel the happening. happening to you. but it is there. in the sigh of the day. and the laughter of the night. brewing.
