how it was for you

you’ve never known madness

he said all confident

like I have

& I wanted to say right


oh really?

tell him talk of the nights I listened to drunks

argue fight outside my window

just so’s I could feel part of something

waking writing on the wallpaper at 2a.m.

stubs of pencils just so’s I could get down a line

walking between rents plastic bags

down to my last socks shoes

hoping to find a friendly face for a week two

the dates on the calendar people love

no cards no flowers no hearts to receive give to

talking with people hearing only echo

undershare over share not thinking overthinking

scared to say a word for misunderstanding

instead I smiled


tell me

all about

how it was for you
