grown up fears

It is not the missing of things

a sweetness at the back of your throat,

the color you can almost name.


But of writing stories that you tell yourself

No one can hurt you the way you do

What was everything you wanted

is now the darkness pooling in the mirror

the reason you pull your covers to your chin

red midnight
