STRETCHED THIN

entering my cantering insides

relying on this tryst of trying

hard to please and not believing

in my own strength or reasons for

relief

I stay away for my own sake

and take my time to be good

to myself and me

I’m creasing all the pages

dogeared and diseased

so come to me and plead

that I give up this rusted

grievance that I’ve held for so long

but you can’t understand

it’s fear prolonged
