Human

Make no mistake:

At home

Alone

In the quiet

Save a purring cat or two

There’s so much

I hold dear

That I can no longer

Hold, dear.

So, so much, that

If I think about it too much

(And I do)

The tears I hold back

Bubble up from my heart

Fighting their way out

Reminding me

As you once did:

“You’re not that tough.”
