Forgetful,

Filled with forgetting,

Brimming with the absence

Of action,


Armed to the teeth

With

Promises held hostage.


The details of my traumas

Taper

Into cranial recesses,

Echoes

In the canyons.


Anxiety

Does not lose

My memories,

Like books slipping like

Soap bars

Through clammy palms,


It withholds them.


There is a knife

At the chords

Of the melody,

And the harmonies

Paint the walls

Of pitch black

Canyons.


Importance without meaning,

Pain without

Lyrics.


The lawn,

The laundry,

The homework,

The postings,

The forms,

The friends,

The family,

The future...


Trust me,

I am full.

So many of us can relate. I'm sorry you're one of them. But I'm thankful you put words to it.
