just to move along

i hesitate to bring up
the words that put you down
does it hurt that much
when you fall to the ground

they always make the same
mistake
putting their hands where
they don’t belong

are the followers kept
to the sides of the house
where the echoes are heard
so shallow and long

hard to keep up the
charade
as the ceiling begins to
fall away

can you keep this close
to the brim of your neck
as i give you my secrets
please don’t give them back
