Inescapable habits

I wrote this about the vulnerability of telling someone your woes and the immediate regret that comes after…


You lean down your ear

and twist your body near

A rush of endorphins when you whisper that you care

I slip up and reveal my darkest fears

My deepest problems


When I look back, I think craziness must have led me here


Why, again!

every time I regret

yet every time I hope

That the many yous in my past

and the you before me now

will understand my pain
