Things I Wanted to Say but Never Did

I wanted to tell you
what my favorite song was
what you did for me
why I feared the dark
why my lungs stopped breathing at night
why I couldn’t bear the thought of honesty
what it felt like inside this shrinking box
why pain doesn’t always bring sorrow
how I hoped you would find peace

I wanted to tell you
not to worry about me

I will be okay.
