i'm not allowed to be

Posted: November 2, 2008 in Uncategorized

i’m scared of how open you’re making me
and i don’t know any beautiful way to say it
and i worry when someone affects me
to the point i lose my linguistic fire.

i worry because i always have questions
and i feel like they’re too much to ask
and they stay inside me fizzling and bubbling
until i’m shaken and they shoot out.

will you leave? when? why? how?
does it matter if i know that my tears
can’t make you stay? or i know this
too soon? or i’ve said too much?

this is one of those times where questions
are intrusive.
