A poem about senses.

Sense

It starts with what I s e e.

You aren't there.

My e y e s search for you,

Crawling over words sitting on the rectangle in my hand.

Your answers are short.

Finally, my eyes f i n d you,

And I h e a r nothing.

You won't answer me.

Stomp, stomp, stomp,

I pick up the sound of boots,

Wincing as the door s l a m s shut.

Instantly, my eyes take over again,

And I begin to c r y.

Liquid flowing in a place it does not belong,

My v o i c e takes over.

Calm, calm, calm,

I am safe here.

And yet your voice comes again,

S c r e a m i n g a complaint.

Now, my s k i n feels the warmth of the shower,

Where the water masks my tears.

Whose fault is this?

My brain is t a k en,

And suddenly it is my fault.

My fault.

My f a u l t.

MY FAULT MY FAULT MY FAULT MY FAULT MY FAULT MY FAULT MY FAULT MY FAULT MY FAULT MY FAULT MY FAULT MY FAULT MY FAULT MY FAULT MY FAULT MY FAULT MY FAULT MY FAULT MY FAULT MY FAULT MY FAULT MY FAULT MY FAULT MY FAULT MY FAULT MY FAULT MY FAULT MY FAULT MY FAULT MY FAULT MY FAULT MY FAULT

Stop.

I gain control of my head with my t h r o a t,

And logic steps in.

It is not my fault.

I leave the water reborn again.

I want you to say sorry.

Step, step, step, your boots are quiet,

I can t a s t e your guilt.

"Stand up."

You can't handle me.

You ran away.

I stand,

And I let you say sorry without actually

s a y i n g

The word.

I let you hug me.

"You're doing this for me."

And then it h i t me,

Smashing into my senses all at once.

And I ask myself,

W h y do I do this for you?

Author's Note

Hello, everyone! I'm sorry I haven't written in a long time, I've been on vacation. I really enjoy writing this style of poem, so I decided to try it again. This poem isn't about any specific event, it's simply something I thought up. I hope you can make your own meaning out of it. Thanks for reading!- Kitty
