I Talk

 
I Talk

I talk around it...

They
with their breath
steaming against my skin
while you look at me
a subject to ponder
with your partner over dinner

I'm pity
I'm a paycheck
a call in the middle of the night
I'm rancid anger
and yes, I hate you
over and over again
hanging up and calling back
until the throbbing voices
shut up
Shut up!
You make them shut up

I talk around it...

They
with their breath
hissing in my ear
cryptically written
scrawled in journals and poems

hands, hands, hands
mouths, mouths, mouths
words, words, words
while you look at me
unraveling my pain

I'm a wound
I'm disease
to only you I speak
listening to my screams
and yes, I hate you
over and over again
