- William Valle
Just Say IT
You make sunlight bend.
A glimmering aura borders me from you.
We speak and laugh
as my heart whines and keeps hush-hush.
My true emotions rolled up like a message
written on weathered cloth
in a corked glass bottle,
floating out to sea.
You started a war
in my head, without knowing.
All the possible reasons for why I'm not good enough,
shoot down the reasons I am.
The storm subsides, as my brain
waves pull and crash onto the D-Day sand.
I climb up from the pit in my stomach-
We need to talk.
