HUSK 1.3

Three Steps

by Chance Drummond

Open up to stranger;
that’s the easy part—
no consequences.
Tell them the strange,
dark shit in your head.
Who will they tell?

Now, open up to your person;
that’s got some strings attached—
most likely misunderstood.
Let them know a few of your feels;
only shared darkness is safe.
Do we need to go over this again?

Open up to yourself?
Ha! There are quicker ways
to get a migraine
and better time to lose
on things that have
nothing to do with you.
