It feels like

someone's broken into your house

and you're trying so hard

to be silent

so the stranger won't hear you

and find you

and hurt you


You're scared

and you're trying so hard

to be careful

trying so hard

not to kick, knock, or touch

anything

that could make a sound

the ground

could hold land mines


Your eyes

scan the room

and you think the coast is clear

until your hand brushes against

something


Something that the stranger hears


You start to run

and you don't see anyone chasing you

so maybe you're okay

but maybe that's not true


Maybe the stranger's right around the corner

waiting to say "boo"

As summer turns to fall

It gets colder

When the world settles down

I'll be older


Or maybe

Chaos only grows?


I guess

No one really knows

People put on faces

Fasten laces 'round their mind

Pull tightly on the strings

'Til truthful things are hard to find
