29.

Who am I still if not trouble
and the delights I long to turn to
trapped in pages, at home in bottles
a careful presentation, who has to know
I’ve more in common with killers
than any friend I have known
a careful mask, a madness only
transcribed and trapped in pages
and when I do die – lover, family
do not publish, I’d rather them not see
anything I felt safe sharing is out
and these yellow, private pages
a spilled madness, guilty secrets
deserve only to be exorcised
punishment fit for those almost-crimes
let my ghost rest, friends still sure
that I might be good
after all
