Sometimes I come crashing down inside myself without anyone noticing.

I take great care of myself by carefully shutting myself away
Your memory comes crashing down upon me in waves.

Sara Gruen, Water for Elephants

Some people turn sad awfully young. No special reason, it seems, but they seem almost to be born that way. They bruise easier, tire faster, cry quicker, remember longer and, as I say, get sadder younger than anyone else in the world. I know, for I’m one of them.
One day I woke up
and we no longer spoke
the same language.
I haven’t heard from you since.
Don’t confuse everyone’s
open arms as an invitation
to come inside and sit down.

Remember that some of us
are simply the doors
to an empty home
that someone else forgot
to close on their way out.
