a series: questions you wish you were asked

who can i unpack this with?

who can i unpack this with?

i saw violet bursting behind my eyelids,

smelled whiffs of mossy stale air,

heard a toddler whining in the other room,

and thought, who else did you love?

and, did you enjoy our days?

and, did you think about them?

and, did you feel bothered?

talk to me,

talk to me.

every day

'talk to me'

and not a single revelation.

how could i forget.
