Purple's Platitudes

nothing but words …

fortitude

fortitude

 

I’m not

very adept

at disguising my pain,

although humor remains my mask

of choice.

 

I wish,

sometimes, I had

more fortitude than this,

inside me, where it really counts

the most.

 

Only

in these quiet,

vulnerable moments

will anyone ever see my

weakness.
