release

i have
released his words
previously shared
with no one

what has stayed
here with me
is this
element
of shame
of emptiness
of betrayal
an insistent promise
now broken
by the apathy
of the recipient
his vulnerability
unveiled
the mask of his
tough-guy
recklessness
ripped off
sent off
to another
master
of his
lines

unmasked
these
copies
skinned of their relevance
were tossed
into the mouth
of manila envelope
and sealed

About lindalou5150

as exercise or exorcism, i write...for the eyes of others, for my eyes and heart only, for the love and the rage, i write...to release the gamut of emotion...to tell the truth and say what's often thought but not written...
