Garbage Post: Why You Hung Up Last Week

Only you can walk through the door

You’re a lock

Keeping watch and refusing admittance

Filled with traps just in case

Spitting when I say I’ll pray for you

+

Cage

Don’t you see the barbwire hugs we run from

No love to anyone

You’ve been hurt, we’ve been hurt, so have everyone else

In different ways we all have keep out signs posted for a time

But you’re a cage to yourself

Burning in anger, pain, and fear

Who can come near to help?

+

Congratulations

Your armor works

Now the sun sets differently

The moon rises cautiously

But downpours don’t care about your name

Leaving a terrible taste it’s the space craved furnished with the bed you’ve made

Will you let anyone?
