Backs and Barriers

You have built your barrier with your back to me

And I’m half grateful on the other side

pretending I’m not crying.

Because I’m always crying.

And that berating, disengaged

“What now?!”

Is like fucking NAILS

on a God damned CHALKBOARD,

your words make my skin crawl.

This is not the person  I want to be.

This is not the person I want to give to you.

But you are not the you I want to receive me.
