I toyed with titles for this piece for a really long time.
Scared, terrified, shaking down to the core.
I'm so happy but sometimes can't sleep.
Encouraged, excited, ecstatic, elated...
Why I'm awake to stretch my legs,
Why my cur might pee in a U-Haul,
Why my anklet is unraveling,
Why I never want to cut my hair again,
Why I am who I am today,
Why I am a patriot,
Why I want to visit every town in this state,
Why I want to cry with my best friend,
Why I'm in love with the future,
Why I'm no longer glued to my past!
Why I'm out of bed in the morning,
Why I smile at every dirt road
If I keep walking
Down this naked walkway,
Naked myself, unknowing,
It will lead me to a door,
And doors lead to answers.
Girls in horror films always open the door,
Even if we tell them not to.
They're not stupid; they're real!
But I still wouldn't open the door..........
But you can.
Come! And lead me to through gate after pergola after office after doorstep.
Open my chest, my lips, my tong
