shrink

back bent slouching
the curve pushes you down
belly squishing extended
you shrink from life

alone you notice
your posture, your pain
make it go away

you shrink away
from the weight
the responsibility
descends

down into the mist
of uncertain thoughts
will they know the fake?

rarely tested, the back bends
alone it descends
rushing up to meet you
the floor of the cavern
crashes into you

you turn and smile
when someone enters the room

This is My Fault

Standing in my PJs
Framed by the doorway
The memory unfolds

Her head hangs
Over the cellar stairs
Her face contorted

Over her stands
The wifebeater
One fist raised
The other clenching
Her shirt

Turns his head
To me

My arms convulse
My face contorts
The tears they course

This is my
Fault
