The Distance Between

See the source image

The distance between us

is thick with emotion

You are right next to me

but we might as well be countries apart

My eyes hid little secrets

too fragile for you to hold


with your judgement


with words you don’t comprehend the weight of


with your ignorance


with your privilege

As you sling your clumsy mud

to inflict hurt

I retreat into my fortress

One I will not give you access to anymore

Because I realize that you do not understand

I have lived a whole life

I have see things that you will never have to see

I have learned lessons that you haven’t had to learn

I have hurt in ways that you could never even bear to taste

I am a well

Old and voluminous

And you have just ensured

that I will never let you see

just how deep

the things

that I don’t share with you
