I need to talk
Spill out my stories
All over the coffee table
Loose leaf pages
With scribbles and crayon drawings
Share them with a stranger
A professional stranger
An unbiased ear, and an inquisitive mind
List out the absent pieces
Then together create a map
Line my mind with missing persons posters
To help me search and find
Unravel the cords I have knotted around my hands
So I can let go
Of all my pain and mistrust
To teach me to speak
A language
So I can communicate with myself again
