    shh

    i step through the threshold of the prison i live in
    i feel my limbs, my face, my soul go heavy
    now lead where there was air
    go up the stairs
    shh, shh, no one must hear you
    shh, shh, don’t let them know.
    stand in the doorway, observing the cage
    body is rigid but collapsing inside
    just like my cell.
    structural integrity enclosing the mutilated heart
    shh, shh, you have to be okay
    shh, shh, you have to be okay
    shh, shh, you have to be okay
    because if you aren’t
    the structure will fall
    the walls will buckle
    and the comfortable misery will give way to truth
    wouldn’t want that, would we?
