I Wonder Out Loud

What if that happened

you know

what if they heard what you

meant only

to keep to yourself.

Walking in a room

seeing them all together

suddenly your internal fears

manifest a megaphone

and the stares begin.

We are a fragile world

how is it then

that sometimes

when I look at the guy next to me

he seems put together

without anxiety

no liberties to be taken with his state of mind,

just quiet, who I am, sort of logic.

Ever wonder why we welcome

rest.

Even in the throes of a dream

still let’s us check out

depart from our reality

only for a time

and then we awaken

to burying our thoughts

in the public eye.

I would love your commentary
