Break (through)

I’m sorry
but I am not sorry
I could not show you
and I could not tell
as I had another
promise to keep
and not everyone is
strong enough
to hold up with such
stories

And I will pop
a bubble rising
above the bath
delicate
and vulnerable
all my fault
as I had that wall built
sturdy and strong
the mortar of years
and I have begun
taking it down

Leaving me raw
and bare, and I know
you don’t like me this way
so look elsewhere
for your strokes
keep looking
for someone to save you
I am trying
with a needle and thread
to save myself

crumbled bricks
and old taffeta
that cannot
be pressed smooth
