Distractions: A Book of Poetry

Poems that I've written


24. Snap

I am afraid

of the cracks in your skin

spirit leaking through

And in your eyes

lurks a darkness

hiding behind

the rare smile

that you show only to me


You say

that you are about to break

One more word,

you say,

one more word

will make you snap

Tongue will not be held

Darkness will make itself seen

Make itself heard


I tell you

not to snap

not to break



for me, for me, for

us, love

You will try

But is trying enough?
