The blanket

have you ever frowned when you wanted to smile?

have you ever been serious when you wanted to laugh and make jokes?

have you ever held back when you wanted to love?

i have

people are sad but they don’t cry out

people are happy but they don’t dance

people are angry but they don’t scream

they hide. they hide under a blanket

and they suffer. as boi did.


that which i didn’t ever want to me… i was forced to be. the poison of sorrow… i’m forced to drink. the wound time has inflicted on me… i’ve had to bear. with new colors then i shall color my life… a few new dreams i will plant.
