i'm a coward. i call my writing an outlet but i just use it to say things i can't bring myself to say to actual people. my poems hold the words i wish i would have said; they're the woulda coulda shouldas i come up with as i walk away. i can't find my words face to face so i write.
& i'm sure in the next few days i'll turn this post into another poem to hide behind.
because i'm actually
not a poet.
i'm just a coward.
