there’s a crack in my head
where all the weakness leaks out

my fear.
my anger.
my longing.
my rage.

my paranoia
and loathing.

confusion and insecurities
all bleed from this rift
at the base of my skull

and it gets
EVERYWHERE.

sometimes i think
only i can see
their stains

they reverberate in the sunlight
and their glare consumes all

i wrap my head in bandages stitched
from the shredded and tattered
loose pieces of myself

in here
under shroud
the silence is deafening.
