Tell Me All of You (Poem #42)

I want to know the silly things you did when you were eight
or the stories you’ll never forget when you were sent to bed

tell me about your parents
tell me fragments of yourself
I truly wanna know

I want to know what makes your eyes light up
your brows meet
your fist clench
or your knees week

I want to know what makes you tremble
what makes you strong
I want to know every word of your favorite song
I want to know everything you did wrong

Please, tell me more
it’s not like I’d love you less
if I didn’t know
it’s just that I want to make sure
that incase you break yourself
I’d just be around to put all the pieces back together

Just reading and writing my way out of this messy adult life! I have transitioned from having piles of notebooks stacked underneath my bed from writing on the internet and allowing people worldwide to read.
