i shouldn't have told a Lovely Soul
but i couldn't keep driving
the clutch stuck in reverse
the brakes lost in translation
pain so thick i couldn't swim

some secrets are better off told

her eyes empathetic
my life mapped out
finally tangible, finally manageable

i'm glad i told her
my legs stronger than ever
i am learning to stand

my soul giving me directions,
i won't miss crawling into dumpsters
wondering about my sanity

i won't miss you.
not for one.

this is my reality

I wrote this piece about someone I used to know who I impulsively called last night.
