“Recover” by L. K. Thayer

Photo by VC Ferry

and your
springs are

gone
and your
stuffing
is coming
out

and you can’t

stuff it
in anymore

and you feel
punched
in the gut
and your body
aches

with regret

and you think

what did I say
can I take it all back
can I make
an exchange

can I make amends

and you ask yourself

can you pretend

that you don’t know

what you know

and you walk out

the door

cause you know

you can’t let it sit
inside you

anymore

    It’s like you took a stroll through my head today. I can’t let it sit.
