These Days – Georgia Park (Private Bad Thoughts, Whisper and the Roar)

I could recount a thousand times
my heart blackened
before it went red again-
when he told me
what happened to him,
when she didn’t
say anything,
when my head
busted open,
When I
stopped speaking-
but you know,
these days, it’s easier
to look at paintings
and write poetry
than to remember
anything
and did you know
I stopped sleeping
and that people say
nice things to me,
show me good things
and do you know
I just
     keep leaving
