Your voice contains inexplicable unrest.
Say the word.
Tell me what I need to do
in order to grant your worries
the peace they hunger for.
Allow me to sit beside your demons.
They want to be heard before they are exiled.
Let me discover what is missing
before you widen the void
that lurks beneath your bones.
We must look the horrors in the face
so they do not convince themselves
they have a place to stay.
