April PAD 3-Confess

He asked me to confess expectations

An open dare to my emotions

My heart clanged against ribcage

Shaking the sturdiness of my spine

And I cried, each tear

Their own confession

As my expectations trailed down my cheeks

And I couldn’t tell him the truth

Or deliver him my hope

In a careful created box of words

I could trace the exit wounds of each exe

And the pain lingered, small phantoms

I wasn’t ready to let him go

So when he asked for a confession

I didn’t give him my emotions

Because how could I expect him to stay

When everyone leaves?
