Poem: Tightrope

Excerpt from Four: “Dear Brother”

IMG_0082

The line

Of your emotions

Was so thin

It was like constantly walking

Tiptoe on a tightrope

 

Even if I faltered by accident

You’d run from me

And hide

Until your confidence

Was bandaged

 

When the line became so thin

That speaking was no longer

An option

My words

Turned to silence
