drama days

somedays
are more peculiar
than others

today, my tongue
is battered and bloody
from spending the day
biting it
in order
to keep from
spewing
my absolute
truths

after all
everyone needs
the steady paycheck
in order to
survive

so, shutting up
is often the
best practice.
right?

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...
