Treasured Pictures

Published: 28 October 2019


Show them the pictures
that you treasure;
the trump cards that speak
of how I spoke to you—

start from the very beginning,
the first message with a link
to which you replied,
“what is this for?”

Show them how I am unlike
the others that may have come before.

Show them that
you had nothing to fear
because I was more afraid
than you have ever been.

Show them all
that you have kept unseen—
of how I spoke about The Dream

and how it rattled my cage
until I could sing no more.

Show them that
whatever it is you told them
they had no reason to want

to push me down the stairs.
