you told me I could tell you anything.
and from my tongue slipped chaos.
broken consonants, faulty vowels, damaged syllables.
from my heart slipped shattered feelings that cradled every word that was to be delivered to your sensitive ears.
I spoke unto you everything that was hidden.
I brought them back to life and served them to you on a platter so silver you can see my innocence fading from your eyes looking back at you as you stared in it.
and from my soul slipped trust.
and into your hands it entered.
and then I was safe.
you may not have understood.
but you listened.
and that was more than I could do for myself.
