[POEM #14]

The thing is

not everyone is going to pay attention to you

as much as you do yourself

Not everyone is going to notice

all the flaws that keep you up all night

all of them

that frightens you

making you think

that you are so far away from enough

Because they all have those

in themselves too

in the pits of hell

and a devil might not exist within me

but I shall stay a bit longer

until the heat and the fire

burns me up

slowly, intensely

but most of all, WHOLLY

the glass

but the shattered pieces

would tear him up
